Tobias wants to add support for a new Neutron plugin to the OpenStack charms; he's able to quickly and easily add this by writing a new subordinate for L2 management.

James is completely paranoid about regressing functionality in the OpenStack charms during development - he can sleep sound knowing that all charms have amulet and bundle tests!

Jane has an existing vSphere deployment; she's able to deploy OpenStack ontop of vSphere using a few manually created VM's using the manual provider and the OpenStack charms so that her users can consume compute and block storage services from the underlying vSphere cloud - inception FTW!

Greg works in a big POWER shop; he's able to deploy OpenStack with Ubuntu and Charm making use of his big-iron servers for hypervisors (yes - even without Ubuntu on them).

Tina wants to write a new openstack charm; she gets started by typing:

   charm create -t openstack

and it has all the standard scaffolding that the openstack-charmers team likes to see!


Regression in functionality - /next branch approach should help mitigate this.

All charms owned by the openstack-charmers team.

Execution of tests on a per-commit/merge basis.
Regular testing.
(the above covered elsewhere)

Use cases can be fulfilled using the OpenStack charms and associated tooling.
