Right, and this is totally possible (using a different distro). In fact, it
is *likely* that in the future the amphora image will be based on a minimal
distro and not anything like the distro the rest of OpenStack is deployed
to. Also, given that the amphora image build process uses DIB and installs
gunicorn via pypi, I'm not clear on how distro packages are relevant. Pypi
installs are distro agnostic, and each operator really does *need* to build
their own amphora image for their own cloud for various reasons...
Also also, normally people think of gunicorn as a binary runner, but we are
actually using it as a Python module:
As for Doug's options, I'm more in favor of option 1 or 2 (since they
actually solve the problem). Option 3 is something we'd like to do, but
doesn't do anything for this particular dilemma. Option 4 is a bit extreme,
and I think the amphora image should still retain ties to OpenStack. :/
