Re: Proposal for new devstack (v2?)


Looks cool :)

I've been trying to plant the seed of switching devstack to python (heavily
utilizing fabric and cuisine) in my team's head for a while now.

We are heavily dependent on devstack for our development and testing
workflows so it would be a pretty big decision for us to switch tools, and
we'd be doing very active development on whatever new tool we switched to.

The general flow and goals of the tool seem appropriate, and it looks like
it could be a good starting place for work in this direction.

The style of the code is pretty far from most of the common openstack style
guides, but that's pretty easily solvable, as are the other small things to
get the project looking more openstack-y.

I'd still be interested in using fabric and cuisine as the underlying layer
because of having a well-tested, built-in way of dealing with remote
servers allows for some more versatility.
