Small openstack 

An interesting conversation on the Operators mailing list discussing
request for small installation of openstack (about 3-5 nodes). The
messages started in December, continued in January and drifted to
discuss distributed glance.

User self registration and management

Adrian Turjak asked on the Development mailing list if there is any
interest or need for an open-source user registration and management
service for people using OpenStack. There seems to be a basic need a way
for users to sign up themselves, choose their own password, and request
new users to be added to their project. David Chadwick pointed to a
blueprint and a demo of the system for University of Kent.Enrique Garcia
also expressed interest in helping out in the effort.
