Run with OpenStack Horizon:

cd <repo_name>
pip install
cp <repo_name>/<module_name>/enabled/_90_project_<panel_group> <horizon-dir>/openstack_dashboard/local/enabled
cp <repo_name>/<module_name>/enabled/_91_project_<panel_group>_<panel> <horizon-dir>/openstack_dashboard/local/enabled

then reboot the Horizon.

OpenStack projects require a working git repo for pbr to work, on newer versions of cookiecutter (>= 0.7.0 released 2013-11-09) this inital commit will be done automatically. Otherwise you will need to init a repo and commit to it before doing anything else:

cd $repo_name
git init
git add .
git commit -a


* Add the project to the OpenStack Infrastructure
