I am installing openstack ocata. "openstack package" of "environment" section of installation guide describes that we need to enable openstack repository.

So my question here is, why do we need to enable openstack resposity. What are the list of software which we need to install from this repository. What will be impact if we do not enable it?

I tried to install python-openstackclient without enabling openstack repository. It installed successfully.

OpenStack is more than the client. Read through the installation tutorial to learn what other packages are required (the package list depends on your Linux distro). If you don't enable the right repositories, you may not be able to install those packages at all, or you may not get the Ocata ones.
