I am pleased to announce the general availability of the RDO build for
OpenStack Liberty for CentOS Linux 7 x86_64, suitable for building
private, public and hybrid clouds. OpenStack Liberty is the 12th release
of the open source software collaboratively built by a large number of
contributors around the OpenStack.org project space.

The RDO community project ( https://www.rdoproject.org/ ) curates,
packages, builds, tests and maintains a complete OpenStack component set
for RHEL and CentOS Linux and is a founding member of the CentOS Cloud
Infrastructure SIG ( https://wiki.centos.org/SpecialInterestGroup/Cloud
). The Cloud Infrastructure SIG focus on delivering a great user
experience for CentOS Linux users looking to build and maintain their
own onpremise, public or hybrid clouds.

In addition to the comprehensive OpenStack services, libraries and
clients, this release also provides Packstack, a simple installer for
proof-of-concept installations, as small as a single all-in-one box and
RDO Manager ( https://www.rdoproject.org/RDO-Manager ) , an OpenStack
deployment and management tool for production environments based on the
OpenStack TripleO project.


Ensure you have a fully updated CentOS Linux 7/x86_64 machine, and run :
  sudo yum install centos-release-openstack-liberty
  sudo yum install openstack-packstack
  packstack --allinone

For a more detailed quickstart please refer to the RDO Project hosted
guide at https://www.rdoproject.org/QuickStart

For RDO Manger consult https://www.rdoproject.org/RDO-Manager page.

RDO project is closely tracking upstream OpenStack projects using the
Delorean tool[1] which is producing RPM packages from upstream development

Since the previous OpenStack Kilo release, RDO is participating
in the Cloud SIG and using CentOS provided infrastructure.
Towards the end of developement cycle packages are imported into CentOS
Cloud SIG buildsystem[2] and get eventually published in Cloud SIG
