[tripleo][tripleo-ansible] Reigniting tripleo-ansible

Hello Stackers,

I wanted to follow up on this post from last year, pick up from where it
left off, and bring together a squad to get things moving.

> http://lists.openstack.org/pipermail/openstack-dev/2018-August/133801.html

The effort to convert tripleo Puppet and heat templates with embedded
Ansible to a more consumable set of playbooks and roles is in full effect.
As we're working through this effort we believe co-locating all of the
Ansible tasks/roles/libraries/plugins throughout the code base into a
single purpose-built repository will assist us in streamlining and
simplifying. Structurally, at this time, most of tripleo will remain the
same. However, the inclusion of tripleo-Ansible will allow us to create
more focused solutions which are independently testable, much easier
understand, and simple to include into the current heat template deployment
methodologies. While a straight port of the existing Ansible tasks will not
be entirely possible, the goal of this ongoing effort will be zero impact
on our existing workflow and solutions.

To reigniting this effort, I've put up a review to create a new
"transformation" squad[0] geared toward building the structure around
tripleo-ansible[1] and converting our current solutions into
roles/playbooks/libraries/plugins. Initially, we'll be focused on our
existing code base; however, long term, I believe it makes sense for this
squad to work across projects to breakdown deployment barriers for folks
using similar technologies.

We're excited to get this effort rolling again and would love to work with
anyone and everyone throughout the community. If folks are interested in
this effort, please let us know.
