OpenStack Essex was pushed to EPEL

After a couple of weeks testing in preview repos and epel-testing, the Essex group of OpenStack packages were added to EPEL as a single update on May 4th.

The Getting started with OpenStack EPEL documentation continues to be updated with simplified instructions as the packages evolve and helper utilities become available.

Thanks to all those testing these packages, and for informing others of their availability

OpenStack Essex was pushed to Fedora 17

Fedora 17 is now frozen for release, which since May 1st includes the Essex OpenStack release.

The Getting started with OpenStack on Fedora 17 documentation is being updated in conjunction with the EPEL documentation referenced above.
