The OpenStack Dashboard is a Django based reference implementation of a web
based management interface for OpenStack.
It is based on django-openstack, which is designed to be a generic Django
module that can be re-used in other sites.
For more information about how to get started with the OpenStack Dashboard,
view the README file in the openstack-dashboard folder.
For more information about working directly with django-openstack, see the
README file in the django-openstack folder.

Project Structure and Testing:
This project is a bit different from other Openstack projects in that it has
two very distinct components underneath it: django-openstack, and
django-openstack holds the generic libraries and components that can be
used in any Django project. In testing, this component is set up with
buildout (see run_tests.sh), and any dependencies that get added need to
be added to the django-openstack/buildout.cfg file.
openstack-dashboard is a reference django project that uses django-openstack
and is built with a virtualenv and tested through that environment. If
depdendencies are added that the reference django project needs, they
should be added to openstack-dashboard/tools/pip-requires.
The run_tests.sh script invokes tests and analysis on both of these
components in it's process, and is what Jenkins uses to verify the
stability of the project.
