In your case, I would like to see an intro to Mesos (your first post, plus basic quick install
steps, plus examples of running jobs in hadoop and mpi), plus basic steps of starting VMs
in cloudstack and setting up Mesos on those VMs. Plus a discussions on how stackmate will
help with the deployment and how it differs from whirr/provisionr. While stackamte is an interesting
way to go, I also think that you could easily patch whirr to provide a "driver" for Mesos,
it would be a nice contribution to whirr.
