Thanks Jeremy and Hong Bin, I will talk with Mesosphere guys in this week's
sync up meeting for this to see if we can integrate it to Magnum.

Will have you updated if there are any feedback on this.

Their EULA at https://docs.mesosphere.com/community-edition-eula/
indicates (item 4 subpart ii):

    "Licensee will not (and will not allow any third party to) [...]
    (ii) sell, assign, distribute, provide, lease, lend, disclose,
    use for timesharing or service bureau purposes, or otherwise use
    or allow others to use for the benefit of any third party, any
    Licensed Software (except as expressly and specifically
    authorized by Mesosphere)."

So without explicit permission from Mesosphere it doesn't seem like
the OpenStack community including Magnum developers can legally
redistribute DCOS Community Edition at all, regardless of whether
it's within the bounds of our community norms (which I also feel
like it isn't).
