I would suggest one small tweak as using 'is in' can return false  
positives when checking the openstacks for a stack name. For example,  
if you have a stack named "dog" and a stack named "dog sled" appeared  
in the openstacks then checking if "dog" was in the openstacks would  
return true.

Try using "is among the lines" instead.

if "name of your stack" is among the lines of the openstacks then
  ## stack is open
end if
