Does the packstack --allinone give an Openstack installation that is more than just a test system i.e can be used for a stable version development ( changing of python code and testing) or for that we need follow the install steps in ?

Is packstack also used to install for development ?

we intend to use at first one server (node) for all the Openstack services , then move to 2 nodes ( compute offloaded)

Hey! You can use packstack for development too. I would advice that once you are done with

$ packstack --allinone

for development puposes do

$ ps -ef | grep <openstack_service>

where <openstack_service> can be the service on which you want develop, ie, keystone, neutron, etc.
The command under the CMD column is the command you would like to use
Taking example for keystone,

$ ps -ef | grep keystone

you should see

/usr/bin/python /usr/bin/keystone-all --config-file /usr/share/keystone/keystone-dist.conf --config-file /etc/keystone/keystone.conf

Use the above for development on keystone source. You can use python debugger conveniently with this.
Note: The above command won't work if the service is running, do stop the service before using it.

You can do most of your work with an all-in-one setup except some network testing that involves vlan, gre or vxlan which requires additional compute nodes.

When you add additional compute nodes, you may need to change the networking configuration to move from local to a vlan,gre,vxlan setup.
