Debian Installer ARM64 Dailies

It's taken a while but all of the pieces are finally in place to run successfully through Debian Installer on ARM64 using the Debian ARM64 port.

As of 07/28/2014 Bug https://ask.openstack.org/en/question/35705/attempt-of-rdo-aio-install-icehouse-on-centos-7/ is still pending and workaround suggested above should be applied during two node RDO packstack installation. Successful implementation of Neutron ML2&&OVS&&VXLAN multi node setup requires correct version of plugin.ini -> /etc/neutron/plugins/ml2/ml2_conf.ini which appears to be generated with errors by packstack. Two boxes  have been setup , each one having 2  NICs (enp2s0,enp5s1) […]
