Services api/presentation logic cleanup

- Remove presentation information from Service model (order, icon)
- To access the list of services filled with both presentation and api
data use Service.catalog(). The method fills a dict with service
identifiers and service metadata through the following steps
- Initialize a service dict using
- Extend (merge and overwrite) it with the correspoding entry in
astakos.im.presentation.SERVICES if exists.
- Merge once again if user has set service metadata in
ASTAKOS_SERVICE_META setting. This way user can change only the
desired service parameters.

- An example of ASTAKOS_SERVICE_META containing keys which

'myservice': {
'name': 'service_identifier',
'url': 'https://service.url/service/ui/',
'verbose_name': 'My service name',
'order': 1,
  1. cloudbar specific parameters
    'cloudbar': {
    'show': True,
    'title': 'My service name in cloudbar' # defaults to verbose_name
  1. dashboard specific parameters
    'dashboard': {
    'show': True, # we use different ordering in dashboard
    'order': 100,
    'description': 'My service description'

- Updated dashboard to use Service.catalog() instead of hardcoded
- Updated service-* commands to keep up with model changes
