Correct, because fuel-agent is only far related to OpenStack. It just
provision bare-metal machines with an operating system, so it could be
used for the deployment of another thing than just OpenStack, which by
the way, may happen one day with Fuel.

Now, with this in the long description:

 Fuel provides PXE booting to all of the bare metal servers it manages.

do you still believe it has something to do with gaz mileage?

I'm ok with this discussion in principle, but it's going really too far
in this way. Let's be serious for 5 minutes please.
