[Openstack] Designate/DNSaaS question

Hi David,

The getting started guide walks through an install into a virtualenv, 
which will isolate the dependencies from any other services. So - 
Following this on your existing controller should be safe.

Generally speaking, our dependencies are fairly close to the current 
havana deps, So, I wouldn't recommend installing from .deb's alongside 
an earlier version of OpenStack. At HP, we deploy onto dedicated servers 
where the dependencies won't conflict.

We do plan on cutting a formal release in or around the time of the 
Havana release (October), at which point it'll be easier to maintain a 
compatible set of .deb's.

In the meantime, you can install Designate using the PPA/.deb's inside 
an instance on top of nova, or you can install into a virtualenv on the 
controller node by following the getting started guide.

Let me know if you have any questions!
