[openstack-dev] [openstack-ansible][octavia] Spec: Deploy Octavia with OpenStack-Ansible

Hey folks,

I drafted a spec yesterday for deploying Octavia with OpenStack-Ansible.  The spec review[0] is pending and you can go straight to the rendered version[1] if you want to take a look.

We proposed this before in the Liberty release, but we ended up implementing only LBaaSv2 with the agent-based load balancers.  Octavia has come a long way and is definitely ready for use in Newton/Ocata.

Most of the spec is fairly straightforward, but there are still two open questions that may need to be answered in the implementation steps:

1) Do we generate the amphora (LB) image on the fly
   with DIB with each deployment? Or, do we pre-build
   it and download it during the deployment?

It might be easier to use DIB in the development stages and then figure out a cached image solution as the role becomes a little more mature.

2) Do we want to implement SSL offloading (Barbican
   is required) now or tackle that later?

I'd lean towards deploying Octavia without SSL offloading first, and then add in the Barbican support afterwards.  My gut says it's better to the basic functionality working well first before we begin adding on extras.

Your feedback is definitely welcomed! :)
