I've seen it, thanks.

My question was really postgres vs mysql. It seem that most Fedora 
Openstack docs recommend using postgres and yet most upstream and RDO 
use mysql, so I was just trying to target my initial efforts 
appropriately. I think Adam would prefer I work on postgres first.

The ultimate goal is to come up with some puppet scripts that can be run 
after enrolling an Openstack host into IPA that will secure its 
services. This is going to be fairly simple in the one-host environment 
I'm starting on, more complex when services are running on separate 
machines. This will be my first foray into puppet.
