So you can have them in different files for general management,
however in order to actually consume them  they need to be in a
roles_data.yaml file for the deployment. We offer a few cli commands
to help with this management.  The 'openstack overcloud roles
generate' command can be used to generate a roles_data.yaml for your
deployment. You can store the individual roles in a folder and use the
'openstack overcloud roles list --roles-path /your/folder' to view the
available roles.  This workflow is described in the roles README[0]
