Please note that quickstart can "doit.sh" [0] as well and even more :)
Although the undercloud_deploy role needs to be supported in the
quickstart.sh maybe, and its documentation [1] should be explaining the
case better.

Undercloud_install_script and the script template itself fully addresses
the needed flexibility for developers and operators. You can git clone /
pip install things, or do not.

It follows the standard quickstart way, which is jinja-templating bash
scripts in order to provide an operator-ish friendly, and independent
from Ansible et al, way to reproduce the scripted steps. And helps to
auto-generate documentation as well.
