Helps to create and build fuel plugins
Starting with version 6.0, Fuel supports a Pluggable architecture.
Fuel plugins allow you to install and configure additional capabilities for your cloud, such as additional storage types and networking functionality. For example, a Load Balancing as a Service (LBaaS) plugin allows you to add network load balancing functionality to your cloud so that incoming traffic can be spread across multiple nodes. Or you might want to use a GlusterFS plugin so that you can use a Gluster file system as backend for Cinder volumes.
For production versions of plugins, including certified plugins, see Released Plugins Catalog.

Plugins should be built using the fuel-plugin-builder (fpb) utility found in this repoistory or via pip. fbp will ensure that build steps as well as validation is performed prior to assembling a package.
pip install fuel-plugin-builder fpb --create fuel_plugin_name fpb --build <path to plugin>
- install fuel-plugin-builder
