at our last Sahara IRC meeting we started discussing whether or not to add
a global requirement for cm_api.py https://review.openstack.org/#/c/130153/
One issue (but not the only issue) is that cm_api is not packaged for Fedora,
Centos, or Ubuntu currently. The global requirements README points out that
requirements for a new dependency more or less forces the distros to package the
dependency for the next OS release.
Given that cm_api is needed for a plugin, but not for core Sahara
should we request that the global requirement be added, or should we seek to add
a global requirement only if/when cm_api is packaged?
Alternatively, can we support the plugin with additional documentation (ie,
to install cm_api on the Sahara node)?
Those present at the meeting agreed that it was probably better to defer a
requirement until/unless cm_api is packaged to avoid a burden on the distros.
we should keep the global requirements request, use it to track
satisfying all the "global requirements" requirements, even if that
involves including cm_api in relevant distros. additionally, in
parallel, provide documentation the addresses how to install & use the
i don't think we should officially enable/support the plugin in sahara
until it can be deployed w/o external/3rd-party steps.
