Hello all, I'm currently working on a way to port OpenStack services to android using Linux duel boot methods, link to current progress on (XDA-Developers) that I've made, and have now gotten to the point that it's time to ask the experts. Currently I've been reading up on many of the install guides and scripts around the web; found the raspberry pi swift install script, found many articles on OpenStack on arm servers, found methods to install all package dependencies though apt-get and add-apt-repo* methods, now to what I need...

I need testers and developers that can get up to speed with what I'm looking to roll out for the communities that can benofit from running OpenStack on mobile devices and gaming consoles.

To contact me about this use the above link to the guide that I'm writing for this and other 'porting to mobile Linux' projects that I'm maintaining or use the links to the Google doc version that can be found with the above link to XDA.

I've been working much on my own on this for some time now and have read much of the content that can be found though well constructed Google searches and much of the general content for installing devstack as well so suggestions should kept away from linking to one of the many articles that only report news without giving content and instead should reference material that doesn't normally show up on the first 10 pages on Google (yep I've been at things like this for some time now) I don't say this to be rude but to try to keep things from becoming redundant for future Google searchers. If you wish to contribute to the efforts and have a rooted android device or two or more kicking around, then, I've been currently absorbed with porting the swift install for raspberry pi and moving out from there, and, any help would be appreciated in debugging and initializing; just contact me though Google or XDA as I'm not sure if this site will automatically notify me of responses.

Thanks in advance to any that can contribute.

List of Questions related to this topic that I have currently marked as unanswered :

Is this possible on current devices on the market? - I realize some devices will not handle running two operating systems let alone operating more tasks than that so this may only be achievable to have on newer models.

Would it be better to spend my time attempting to run this natively on the android kernel and OS instead of porting it to run on the arm flavors of Linux? - With the kernel differences soon to be merged I've been looking into running this direction but as of yet I've more experience with Linux than Android.

Biggest question of all... Who here is willing to join up in developing this method ... (more)

... this doesn't appear to be a question?

This sounds like a good topic to discuss in the OpenStack General Mailing list since what you're really asking are opinions. This site is not good at this sort of discussions

Thanks, I'll make the effort to move the questions to the proper place and close or delete this version if that's what needs to be done. Thanks to the two of you for the quick responses. Question; I've been hunting for the join link, where's that at or do I need to get a launchpad account?

Hi, for now the OpenStack general mailing list is on launchpad (we're working to move it off). This means to join you need to follow the 3 step process on :( 1. launchpad account, 2. click any join team link, 3. hit subscribe in 3rd link
