Hi Lorin,

It's not really that nova-objectstore has gone anywhere... just that
it is not being developed further, and while it used to be that if you
were using the EC2 API and tooling you would need to have a Nova
FLAG.image_service set to nova.images.s3.S3ImageService, this is no
longer the case. nova-objectstore is still used in the EC2 API for the
purposes of euca2ools, as certain tools like euca-bundle-image only
work with an S3 object store. nova-objectstore stores the manifest.xml
and compressed image parts during the process of bundling an image.
However, the eventual image is stored in Glance. So, nova-objectstore
is a service that enables the euca-bundle-image and euca-upload-bundle
tools to work with Nova, but it serves no other purpose and is no
longer a configurable part of Nova's image management.

Hope that makes sense!
