Let’s eliminate the lag between coding and deploying! As we drive towards DevOps continuous deployment, it makes sense that our deployment scripts should be able to bypass packaging and pull directly from source code. That’s exactly what the Crowbar team has created as an option for Folsom deployments. This is a central use case for feature development because your testing code that is ahead of trunk; however, we see the same use cases for deployments that have bug fixes, proprietary features, pre-release features or any drift from trunk. This feature is the path to get maximum control of your OpenStack deployment.
