Type: New Feature

Fix Version/s: 1.6.1
There is an open source effort to implement Ambari-Shell: https://github.com/sequenceiq/ambari-shell
It would make sense to integrate it into the official source tree.
The attached ambari-shell.md contains a detailed explanation of what Ambari shell is, but in broadly
it is a context aware, interactive command line tool which simplifies the usage of the Ambari's REST API without
using the webui. The plan is to cover all the functionalities that Ambari provides to be able to automate
every necessary step needed to create and manage a cluster.
