Brace yourself, DevStack Ceph is here!

It’s already a legend: after 7 months and 42(fortytwo) patch sets, Sebastien Han’s patch got merged into DevStack. The patch configures things to bootstrap a Ceph cluster and then configure the OpenStack services Glance, Cinder, Cinder backup and Nova. A toast to Sebastien’s persistence and to all Devstack maintainers who provided help.
