Doesn't "devstack" count? If not, why not?



The common joke became that devstack was the only thing actually tested and if something ran there it was considered done...


devstack was actually really wonderful. It is the part that I remember the most of the whole project.


A lot of the OpenStack engineering processes, and tools supporting them, were actually really strong for an open source project from the ground up. The problem was that a lot of it was engineering for engineering's sake without a care in the world for usability or what someone would actually use the end result for.

Devstack is a great example of this, because it became a critical building block for continuous integration but also meant testing was more focused on whether you could run it on a developer laptop than ever get an actual cluster working.
