I was successfully able to do a dry run of the distaf within centos infra.
I am writing a wrapper to request for nodes and then release them once
tests are done. But I was able to run testcase without any other issues. I
hope to get this complete by Monday evening. Once that is done, we need to
trigger the job through Jenkins, which shouldn't take much effort.

But since there are no extra disks in the servers, I am working around by
using the 'force' option in volume create. But it would be better to have a
disk which we can provision for our use. This might take some time since it
needs to be done from the centos-ci side.

Yes, Once I complete this, I will be writing a HOWTO and a screencast. The
video I had hasn't properly recorded the sound, so if needed I will make a
video as well. But HOWTO and a better README is the first step.
