Given that the producer-consumer notifications are not handled by Glance, this is not a problem. (Or, to be more precise, not a problem for Glance.) A producer can share an image with you multiple times, but since the producer cannot change your member-status, it will remain in 'pending' (or 'rejected' if you've already rejected it). So there is no quota necessary for this operation. > > ------------------ Original ------------------ > *From: * "Brian Rosmaita"<rosmaita.foss...@gmail.com>; > *Date: * Mon, Nov 19, 2018 10:26 PM > *To: * "OpenStack Developmen"<email@example.com>; > *Subject: * Re: [openstack-dev] [glance] about use shared image with > each other > > On 11/19/18 7:58 AM, Rambo wrote: >> Hi,all >> >> Recently, I want to use the shared image with each other.I find it >> isn't convenient that the producer notifies the consumer via email which >> the image has been shared and what its UUID is.
