Hi everyone,

I wanted to share this with the group in the hopes that we could get
some feedback. We've built a set of Ansible playbooks to install &
configure a "full" OpenStack deployment based on the Red Hat packaging
on CentOS 6.

(Ansible is a configuration management and software deployment
automation tool: http://www.ansibleworks.com/)

Here are the playbooks and some basic documentation:


I'm interested to know what folks think and if anyone finds this
useful. I think it might be useful for quick deployments (you can go
from a group of minimally installed CentOS boxes to OpenStack in 20-30
minutes), and I think this could serve as the basis for a more
sophisticated production deployment mechanism.

We are also doing a howto webinar to present this, on July 11, 8AM
Pacific Time (http://ansibleworks.enterthemeeting.com/m/4JMW7MBA)

Thanks for looking! Any feedback appreciated!
