Re: [Openstack] Proposal for new devstack (v2?) For those that want to try it glance should be working!
Since glance has dependencies on keystone, and the database both of these will be installed and started automatically (uninstall and starting and such should work!)
How to accomplish this can be seen at the github page readme.

I will write up some documents on the github twiki sometime soon with more details!
Nova and the rest should be coming along soon.
Hopefully this will make everyones lives easier in the end :-)
Please try it out, feedback welcome :-)

Sweet, we are working on getting functionality for rhel and ubuntu up and going and then hopefully some docs (and code comments) can be added in so other people can know exactly what is going on (without the typical "go read the code" response). But the idea is the following:

Have a set of json files (+ I added the ability to have simple comments) that specify the needed dependencies + versions (+ other metadata) for each distribution.


Have those different sections be handled by a class specific to a distribution (or possibly shared, ie fedora and rhel).

https://github.com/yahoo/Openstack-Devstack2/tree/master/devstack/packaging (WIP as we work with the rhel peoples to get the dependencies flushed out)

Similar with pip installs (if any):


Then this information can be updated as needed  for each release of openstack (with exact dependencies, yaaaa a win for everyone!) so that this whole pkg process becomes better for everyone.

Of course also we are allowing other types of running besides screen (I like just having it in the background via a fork with output going to files...)

That's whats going on so far :-)

Serious kudos to you guys on this part. IMHO, having a devstack that
supports multiple distros is a massive win for OpenStack generally.

Hopefully we can dig in and help with Fedora support soonish
