    Numerous tools have emerged as connectors for utilizing OpenStack APIs. This range of connector tools is too great for any one community to support: (a) APIs/SDKs (e.g. OpenStackCLI, LibCloud, Shade, jClouds, Fog, GopherCloud, etc), (b) Provisioning (e.g. Ansible, Terraform, Salt, Chef, Puppet), and (c) C/PaaS (e.g. OpenShift, Cloud Foundry, Docker Swarm, Cloudify, DC/OS, etc). Discussion on recommendations for moving from a '1 to many' to a '1 to few' application community tactic.
