Why does Packstack on CentOS require multiple support documents?

For the most basic openstack setup outside of devstack, packstack requires 3 separate documents to install. (Quickstart) is the main page, but the document lacks a version number, a date, a link to the source, or comment or discussion section. Only links to 2 other required documents. (Neutron with existing external network) requires the user to manually edit multiple config files, enter in commands, and a Morse-code-like series of reboots. Worst of all the author demands the admin manually clone MAC addressees. That is insane. That is something a computer can do. If we wanted to be cloning MAC addresses by hand we would have made them human readable in the first place. You are doing it wrong. (Workarounds) why are there workarounds for simple default installs?
