As discussed in TripleO and Horizon meetings, we are proposing to move
Tuskar UI under the Horizon umbrella. Since we are building our UI
solution on top of Horizon, we think this is a good fit. It will allow
us to get feedback and reviews from the appropriate group of developers.

I don't think, we really disagree here.

My main concern would be more: what do we get, if we make up another
project under the umbrella of horizon? I mean, what does that mean at all?

My proposal would be, to send patches directly to horizon. As discussed
in last weeks horizon  meeting, tuskar UI would become integrated in
Horizon, but disabled by default. This would enable a faster integration
in Horizon and would reduce the overhead of creating a separate
repositoy, installation instructions, packaging etc. etc.

From the horizon side: we would get some new contributors (and hopefully
reviewers), which is very much appreciated.


This is important note. From information architecture and user interaction point of view, I don't think it makes sense to keep all the three tabs visible together (Project, Admin, Infrastructure). There are lot of reasons, but main points:

* Infrastructure itself is undercloud concept running in different instance of Horizon.

* Users dealing with deployment and infrastructure management are not the users of OpenStack UI / Dashboard. It is different set of users. So it doesn't make sense to have giant application, which provides each and every possible feature. I think we need to keep focused.

So by default, I would say that there should exist Project + Admin tab together or Infrastructure. But never all three together. So when Matthias say 'disabled by default', I would mean completely hidden for user and if user wants to use Infrastructure management, he can enable it in different horizon instance, but it will be the only visible tab for him. So it will be sort of separate application, but still running on top of Horizon.

Thanks for pointing this out, In Horizon you can easily decide which dashboards to show, so the Infrastructure management Horizon instance can have Project and Admin dashboards disabled.

I think there has been discussed that some panels of Admin dashboard should be required for infrastructure management. We can solve this by adding those selected Admin panels also into Infrastructure dashboard.
