Hello All, So, I'm working on https://review.openstack.org/#/c/111459/, and have encountered an issue. It seems that the Nova Baremetal driver uses the ImageCacheManager from the Libvirt driver. For various reasons (see the commit), the ImageCacheManager has been refactored to require a libvirt connection to function properly. However, the Nova Baremetal driver cannot provide such a connection. Bearing in mind that Baremetal is deprecated and slated to be replaced by Ironic, the question is such: what to do about the ImageCacheManager.
One option would be to make it so that the ImageCacheManager can function without a libvirt connection. This might make sense if the Baremetal driver were around to stay; there would be somewhat less duplication than a wholesale copying of the code. However, in light of Baremetal's impending this seems to me to be a poor choice since it would involve lots of duplicate functionality, would complicate the ImageCacheManager code, and would later need to be manually removed once the Baremetal driver is removed. The second option would be to make a copy of the old ImageCacheManager in the Baremetal directory, and have the Baremetal driver use that. This seems to me to be the better option, since it means that when the Baremetal driver is removed, the old ImageCacheManager code goes with it, without someone having to manually remove it. What do you think?
