Heat RefStack - A reference implementation of OpenStack

The OpenStack project does an insane amount of automated testing as part of the development cycle, but up until now there has been no corresponding testing that can be performed against running public clouds. While we want to do that, before we can test other people's clouds for compatibility, we need to be able to express what it is they need to be compatible with. Enter RefStack It turns out that OpenStack is rich enough now to express a reference implementation in terms of itself, using heat templates.
