How to build OpenStack from scratch

Folks,

I understand OpenStack is comprised of seven core components - Nova, Swift, Cinder, Neuton, Horizon, Keystone and Glance. I also understand there are instructions on how to install OpenStack on specific platforms. What I am not very clear is if I had to build OpenStack from scratch, how do I go about doing it?

I could guess that for each core component listed I will need to get appropriate source code from GitHub and compile/build it. Missing part is the "glue" steps that will bind all these components together to form OpenStack deployment once I have source code compiled. At least I could no find it.

Please let me know if there are best practices around building and running OS from source code.

Thanks.
