Thanks for the good question - it is important to understand the concepts.

Unfortunately, this mailing list is just for discussion about the 
OpenStack "Foundation", so you might not get a good response from this 

Not to worry, though - recently an "Ask OpenStack" site was started:


If you post the same question there, you'll certainly get a good response!

I notice you're from New Zealand. If you're able to get to Wellington on 
Thursday, this event: http://catalystopensource.eventbrite.co.nz will 
have some people (including myself!) that will be discussing OpenStack.
