The thing is, we have the patch - https://review.openstack.org/#/c/120433/, so it's not like there is a zomg run around to get the patch. I think we should FFE this patch as it provides a smoother transition from baremetal to ironic. The patch is extremely low risk to the rest of Nova, as it's a surface proxy feature, so lets just land it and move forward. -Sean -- Sean Dague http://dague.net _______________________________________________ OpenStack-dev mailing list OpenStackemail@example.com http://lists.openstack.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/openstack-dev
