i have been doing some research into converting our current
authentication to use the Keystone Session objects instead of the
various methods that are now used with the openstack clients.
this effort has some wide-ranging implications as we will need to
convert our usage of openstack clients to accept a new workflow. as part
of this we might need to change our Context object to retain a Session
instead of the current authentication information. it may even be
possible to greatly simplify the information that the Context object
i think this work can logically be broken into several parts, the first
part would involve changing the creation of Keystone Client objects to
be generated from a Session. after this change, the next step would
involve changing the various openstack client objects that are in use to
be created from Sessions instead.
i am working on a spec for this but i have heard from Sergey Reshetnyak
during the IRC meeting that he and Andrey Pavlov had interest in this
topic as well. i wanted to start something on the mailing list for us to
discuss the progress of this effort. so, my questions are:
should i continue to draft a spec surrounding this, or is Andrey looking
into a spec as well?
assuming i continue to draft a spec, would Andrey, or anyone else, want
to be added as contributors?
alternatively, would someone else like to take the lead on the
if we have multiple people working on this it might be easier to break
up all the client work that needs to be done. i think we will need to
clearly organize the effort and this is where the spec comes in.
