On page 19 of http://file.bne.redhat.com/~adahms/osp/pdf/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux_OpenStack_Platform-7-Command-Line_Interface_Reference_Guide-en-US.pdf it says:

"To install the clients on Red Hat Enterprise Linux, use pip. It is easy to use, ensures that
you get the latest version of the clients from the Python Package Index, and lets you
update or remove the packages later on."

Getting the latest version (possibly different than what you installed on your other machine yesterday) is one of the reasons users should use rpms and not pip. We ship rpms for all the clients we support so I'm not sure why we do not document to use them.

Assigning to Deepti for review.

Deepti - will the changes on the previous CLI bug you worked on take care of the request here as well?
