Thank you, Ian.  I watched your videos. You pointed out that the floating 
IP addresses are not working well for you.  Other people, such as 
Salvatore Orlando in another reply to my question, have claimed that 
floating IP addresses will work.  I would like to have the floating IP 
addresses working well for me.

In one of my replies to Salvatore I said that I am not picky.  Perhaps I 
have one unusual requirement: I do not want to install OpenStack in a 
VirtualBox VM.  I want to install OpenStack on a bare metal machine, and I 
want to install OpenStack in a VM made by somebody else's OpenStack 

I noticed that you did not discuss the setting of FLOATING_RANGE and 
PUBLIC_NETWORK_GATEWAY.  I suspect that, in order for floating IP 
addresses to work correctly, the settings of these need to bear some 
particular relationship to the host's IP address, netmask, and gateway. 
And I wonder whether PUBLIC_NETWORK_GATEWAY describes a pre-existing 
gateway or one that DevStack will create.

I am attempting only a single-node install.  I prefer to use Ubuntu 14.04 
on the host.  I want DevStack to install the latest code from the "master" 

I think there was a copy-and-paste error on the short URL for your 
localrc; I presume you meant http://goo.gl/OeOGqL --- as in your video.
