In the most recent Ironic meeting we discussed  tenks, and the

the right direction, I'll propose a vote for inclusion under Ironic's
Tenks is a project for managing 'virtual bare metal clusters'. It aims
to be a drop-in replacement for the various scripts and templates that
exist in the Ironic devstack plugin for creating VMs to act as bare
metal nodes in development and test environments. Similar code exists in
Bifrost and TripleO, and probably other places too. By focusing on one
project, we can ensure that it works well, and provides all the features
necessary as support for bare metal in the cloud evolves.
That's tenks the concept. Tenks in reality today is a working version
1.0, written in Ansible, built by Will Miller (w-miller) during his
summer placement. Will has returned to his studies, and Will Szumski
(jovial) has picked it up. You don't have to be called Will to work on
Tenks, but it helps.
There are various resources available for anyone wishing to find out more:

* Blog: https://stackhpc.com/tenks.html
* IRC: mgoddard or jovial in #openstack-ironic
What does everyone think? Is this something that the ironic community
could or should take ownership of?
How does Tenks relate to OVB?
