The placement module is a part of OpenStack, an effort by the OpenStack infrastructure team to provide continuous integration testing and code review for OpenStack and OpenStack community projects not part of the core software. The module its self is used to flexibly configure and manage the placement service for OpenStack.

Module Description

The placement module is a thorough attempt to make Puppet capable of managing the entirety of placement. This includes manifests to provision region specific endpoint and database connections. Types are shipped as part of the placement module to assist in manipulation of configuration files.

placement is a combination of Puppet manifest and ruby code to delivery configuration and extra functionality through types and providers.
