    Add TOSCA assets

(spzala) Hi Crhis, for 'determine/implement app-catalog-ui changes:' - I believe that is make changes to display TOSCA content here, http://apps.openstack.org/# ?

(spzala) And for 'determine/implement web site changes:' - does that mean on the wiki, https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/App-Catalog ? Thanks.

(kfox1111) spzala, so we have a split code base at the moment. The code for apps.openstack.org lives in the app-catalog repo. The code for the horizon plugin lives at app-catalog-ui. We've started to pull out the common code from the app-catalog-ui that could be shared with the app-catalog website to app-catalog-common, so that we only need to change code in one place app-catalog-common to add support for new asset types, but its not there yet. its part of this review: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/239560/ . I talked it over with Chris, and we think it would be ok to make an exception for TOSCA assets to merge a change just to the website and not the horizon plugin while we wait for the merged ui code to be finished. we don't want to accept more asset types because every one we add to the old website is additional work needed to get the new one working, delaying it further.

(kfox1111) So the determine steps are planning related to the apps.openstack.org website and horizon plugin respectively, and then the actual change tasks too.

(kfox1111) I think planning out how it will work with the horizon plugin will be very important to the app-catalog-common effort though, so we all need to discuss how horizon's going to work.
