Hi, deployment tools teams,

As mentioned here last month[1], we are working to improve the 
information present on the deployment tools pages on the OpenStack 
website, and we need your help!

After the Forum session on this topic in Denver[2], a workgroup worked 
on producing a set of base capabilities that can be asserted by the 
various deployment tools we have. You can find version 0.1.0 of those 
capabilities here:


As an example, I pushed a change that makes every deployment tool assert 
the capability to deploy keystone ("components:keystone" tag) at:


Now it's your turn. Please have a look at the list of the capabilities 
above, and propose a change to add those that are relevant to your 
deployment tool in the following file:


Capabilities are all of the form "category:tag" (components:keystone, 
starts-from:os-installed, technology:puppet...). Once all deployment 
projects have completed that task, we'll add the capabilities to the 
rendered page on the website and allow for basic searching for tools 
with matching capability.

Now, capabilities go only so far in describing your deployment tool. I 
also encourage you to improve in the same file the "desc" field: that 
one is directly displayed on the site.Uuse it to describe in more 
details how your deployment tool actually works and what makes it 
unique, beyond basic capabilities tags.

Please feel free to use this thread (or personal email) if you have 
questions on this. And thanks in advance for your help!
