Hi Gyorgy,

I'll definitely give this a look and thanks for sharing. I would like to ask however why you found OpenStack-Anisble overly complex so much so that you've taken on the complexity of developing a new installer all together? I'd love to understand the issues you ran into and see what we can do in upstream OpenStack-Ansible to overcome them for the greater community. Being that OpenStack-Ansible is no longer a Rackspace project but a community effort governed by the OpenStack Foundation I'd been keen on seeing how we can simplify the deployment offerings we're currently working on today in an effort foster greater developer interactions so that we can work together on building the best deployer and operator experience.

All that said, thanks for sharing the release and if I can help in any way please reach out.

I just want to announce a new installer for OpenStack:
It is GPLv3, uses Ansible (currently 1.9.x, has some bugs which has to be resolved), has lots of components integrated (of course there are missing ones).
Goal was simplicity and also operating the cloud, not just installing it.
We started with Rackspace's openstack-ansible, but found it a bit complex with the containers. Also it didn't include all the components we required, so started this project.
Feel free to give it a try! The documentation is sparse, but it'll improve with time.
(Hope you don't consider it as an advertisement, we don't want to sell this, just wanted to share our development).
