[Openstack] Current state of 'roll your own' auto provisioning?

Both puppet and chef communities have actively maintained modules / cookbooks in stackforge. Puppet ones were recently released for icehouse (so now stable/icehouse branch is for icehouse, and master is for deploying juno) and it looks like the master branch of the chef cookbooks is for icehouse

If you’re at the summit, there’s a chef meeting from 11:15 – 2:40 on Tue, and there’s a puppet meeting from 2:50 – 6:10 on Tue (they’re under “Other Open Source Projects” in the mobile schedule app)

Subject: [Openstack] Current state of 'roll your own' auto provisioning?


Has anyone got a view on the current state of auto provisioning for Icehouse? For people who prefer to roll their own development environment, are Puppet and Chef (and Juju, or anything else) up to date? From my research things seem to be a little behind or sparsely documented, is that right? Has anyone had any joy with any of the automation/orchestration tools out there or is it a case of ploughing through an install guide? I'm happy with using Vagrant but even then it would seem to be a case of manual configuration for OpenStack (unless I've missed new boxes on Vagrant Cloud).
