I Can't add the RDO-repository on a fresh CentOS 7 install. Any Ideas? I got this error:

Loaded plugins: fastestmirror
Repository 'openstack-juno': Error parsing config: Error parsing "baseurl = ' from Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.1 (Source)/'": URL must be http, ftp, file or https not ""
Cannot open: Skipping.

Have you run yum -y update before ?

Yes, I did every step listed in the Quickstart guide. I think the problem is because the repo tries to open the dir epel-Derived/ but on there is only a epel-7/ dir.

I think I found the issue. Since RHEL is updated to 7.1, CentOS is now on Centos 7.1, too. So the RPM does not recognize the correct version of CentOS. Any Ideas?

Just, replace the baseurl address in the repofile like that:

Edit: vim /etc/yum.repos.d/rdo-release.repo

Replace: baseurl= from Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.1 (Source)/ for: baseurl=

It worked for me!

You need to edit the yum repo file as Renato described in his answer. Then you may run into another packstack problem with missing packages as test02 described. It appears that some puppet scripts are reading /etc/redhat-release and not acting properly because the file format just changed. If you copy /etc/centos-release to /etc/redhat-release (save it off somewhere), and also turn off NetworkManager, you may be able to run packstack on CentOS 7.1 as I just did. (Its probably a good idea to restore /etc/redhat-release afterwards.)
