Debianizing Documentation


Hi All !

...besides the patches I already sent,
I'm currently working on Debianizing the official documentation,

I will provide a non-intrusive patch, by adding "sudo" support to Debian:
# usermod -a -G sudo <myuser>

+ explain the basic packages, that need be installed, plus add mention
of Debian across the docs.
I have started with "staring guide" and "nova" manuals.
This approach will allow to keep much of the guide pre-pended by "sudo
this; sudo that", at the same time supporting Debian...

For the curious: Debian project *has* own HOW-TO here:

... but I believe it is important to embrace Debian a bit more boldly
within the OpenStack community, at the official docs level.
