I'm similarly torn. One of the things Jesse and I have spoke of several
times is in making sure that we don't let the scope of devstack grow to
the point where we re-invent chef or puppet or juju. It's not really
intended as a tool for doing "real" deployments - it's intended to make
developer's lives easier, and to serve as an easy to follow living
document of what a base working openstack installation looks like.
My concern is that if we go and get all software developer on it and
make it python and "right" and "better" - that it will cease to be an
easy to follow annotated installation and start to become a
custom-written multi-purpose deployment software.
