    How does Tenks relate to OVB?


Good question. As far as I'm aware, OVB is a tool for using an OpenStack cloud to host the virtual bare metal nodes, and is typically used for testing TripleO. Tenks does not rule out supporting this use case in future, but currently operates more like the Ironic devstack plugin, using libvirt/KVM/QEMU as the virtualisation provider.

Yeah, sounds like this is more a replacement for the kvm virtual environment setup in tripleo-quickstart. I'm adding the tripleo tag for their attention.
