Hey Henry!

It's good to hear from you! You were always fun to work with and I got a
lot out of our chats about crazy, enterprisey things. I guess the world
with have to wait for another episode of "Stanek & Nash".

I think this highlights one of my problems with the current architecture. I see 
that
you've removed the FK and added delete logic to do what the data layer would be 
doing
for you. I didn't see any added get_user() checks to make sure the user_id 
being used
in creates/updates is valid. Are we already checking that somewhere else or is 
this
introducing a new bug?

[openstack-dev] [keystone] Adding foreign keys between subsystems

2017-04-12 Thread David Stanek
[tl;dr I want to remove the artificial restriction of not allowing FKs between
subsystems and I want to stop FK enforcement in code.]

The keystone code architecture is pretty simple. The data and functionality are
divided up into subsystems. Each subsystem can be configured to use a different
backend datastore. Of course, there are always exceptions to the rule like how
the federation and identity subsystems are highly coupled in the data model.

On the surface this flexible model sounds good, but there are some interesting
consequences. First, you can't tell from looking at the data model that there
actually is a lot of coupling between the subsystems. So instead of looking at
our sqlalchemy models to see relationships, we must look throughout the code
for where a particular primary key is used and look for enforcement. (Hopefully
we enforce it in all of the right places.) Additionally, a DBA/data architect/
whenever can't see the relationship at all by looking at the database. 

Second, this has polluted our code and causes erroneous API errors. We have 
added
lots of get_*() calls in our code that checks for the existence of IDs in
another subsystem. In some cases we probably don't do the check and thus would
allow bad data to be stored. The check often causes 404s instead of 400s when
bad data is provided.

So I'd like us to be more deliberate in defining which parts of the data model
are truly independent and a separate backend datastore would make sense. For
instance, we know we want to support LDAP for identity (although this still puts
identity info into a SQL database) and catalog is very isolated from the rest of
the data model.

As a side effect this means that if deployers wished to use a separate backend
for something they would need to also implement it for the other highly coupled
subsystems. They would also have to provide any FK enforcement that their own
datastore does not provide.

Thoughts?

I'd like to hear solutions to this if you have already come up with
them. This issue, however, isn't the only one that led us to remove PKI
tokens.

I would guess that, at least in the immediate future, we would not want
to put it back into keystone until someone can fix the issues. Also
ideally running the token provider in production.

Sure. We have a pretty packed calendar, but I'm sure you could steal a

Have you tried playing with the crypt_strength[1]? If the slowness is
the crypto (which it was in the past) then you can tune it a little bit.
Another option might be to keep the same token flow and find a faster
method for hashing a token.

I agree. I think having different behavior for tokens based on scope
will not only lead to bad user experiences, but will lead to baking in
those rules into the client. Someone will propose this as soon as they
get confused by the token 401ing unexpectedly.

That's a bit overly dramatic. I think having some innovation is a good

simpler than those of nova.

I believe we tried to keep with the same extract/migrate/contract
patterns. Sure our implementation differs, but I don't see operators
caring about that as long as it works.

I've done both types of migrations in the past, but with one imporant
exception. We could roll out our application on Tuesday and then the
cleanup on Thursday. We didn't carry baggage for 6 months to a year. My
fear with keystone is that we'd slow development even more by adding
more cruft and cruft on top of cuft.

I wanted to mention a few things. One of the reasons I suggested this
approach for keystone is that I've had success in the past using a
combination of triggers and code to do live, online migrations. Many
times using completely different schemas.

In keystone we are just talking about some simple data transformations
between columns and things like that. The triggers themselves shouldn't
get too complicated. If there are cases where triggers won't work, then
we won't force them. (A current example of this is encrypting
credentials.)

The online migrations are not required. Operators can still go the old
route and db_sync while others help test out the cutting edge features.

The triggers are not there during the entire lifecycle of the
application. The expand phase adds them and the contract removes them.

One thing to note here is that the credentials for TOTP stored in the
keystone credentials backend are not encrypted. So a breach of your
database could expose those to an attacker. This is a review[1] to fix
this issue that is close to merging.

Hey Kevin,

It's hard to tell without a lot of the context. From what I can tell the
token is pulled down as part of the data of an API request. As long as
that's not cached I think you are OK.

A quick look at the code[1] show that the HTTP client used by the identity
client actually returns a tuple instead of a response object. The tuple
contains two items: a response object and a signal handler object.

This is the first I've heard of this project, so I was very disappointed
to not find any docs for it.

Since tokens are bearer tokens any leak could possibly lead to a
security issue. I don't see allowing the JS application to have access
to the token as being a terrible thing.

We just need to make sure we do it as safely as we can in order to
prevent the token from lingering around after the web session has
completed. For example, putting the token in redirect URLs may cause
it to end up in browser history, putting it in the source of page
that could be cached may write it to disk, etc, etc.

This isn't something I would want to see for a few reasons. The most
important one is that I think the decision to run db_sync needs to be
explicit. An operator should run it when they are ready (maybe they
need to shut something down, ensure up-to-date backups, etc.).

Another issue is database modification permissions. The user running
the application, as well as the DB user the application uses,
shouldn't have access to DML for security reasons. Little Bobby
Tables' mom found this out the hard way[1].

I put together a tool[1] that can do this. There is some manual work
involved because you have to save the print view of your calendar from your
browser.

It was a quick and dirty hackso patches accepted and encouraged.

Overall I'm not really a fan of this design. It's just a hack to add
attributes where they don't belong. Long term I think this will be hard to
maintain.

I'm not sure that this is entirely true. If we truly just split up the
project, meaning we don't remove functionality, then we'd have the same
number of bugs and work. It would just be split across two projects.

I think the current momentum to get out of the authn business is still our
best bet. As Steve mentioned this is ongoing work.

I believe that using Keystone for this is a mistake. As mentioned in the
blueprint, Keystone is not encrypting the data so magnum would be on the
hook to do it. So that means that if security is a requirement you'd have
to duplicate more than just code. magnum would start having a larger
security burden. Since we have a system designed to securely store data I
think that's the best place for data that needs to be secure.

I think that some of the issues have been real. Keystone had issues with
0.18.0 because it dropped methods from subprocess after patching it. They
called it out in their release notes as an incompatible change.

Version 0.18.2 broke the Keystone tests for Python 34. The poll() method
seemed to be in some sort of deadlock and the tests timed out. This may
have been a testing problem, but for whatever reason Python27 didn't have
the issue.

I want to say that we've seen other issues after 0.17.4, but I can't find
definitive evidence.

The code above is not stylistic in nature.  It actually changes the
semantics of the check. This should not be done blindly across the board.

In the first case it looks for a value to be greater than a constant. In
the second case it looks for a value to have a truthy value.

Only if the code is correct. In that review I saw you changing "len(x) > 0"
to "len(x)" and that's fine. But you also changed a check looking at the
status code from a conductor call to no longer allow negative return
values. I have no idea if it returns negative numbers, but in this case I
would guess the "> 0" had a purpose.

Those two statements are also not the same. 'if var' will be True is 'var'
is *only* True values. 'if var is not None' will be True *everything*
except None, so 0, '', [], etc. will not pass the first test, but will pass
the second.

I'm assuming that this would be for client functional tests because it

seems like it would be possible for the mocked API to not match the actual

I don't know if it's fair to say that voting for the current, strict rules
is the same as voting for distrust. I also don't know if it's fair to say
that we have multiple examples of organizations abusing power without
clarifying if you mean in our community.

As I said earlier I can see these rules as being protective. Similar to how
organizations have lots of rules about getting gifts from suppliers,
customers, etc. and a variety of other 'conflict of interest' situations.
Much of that is useful to avoid the appearance of impropriety. Simple rules
can keep you out of some bad situations.

Is that valuable at all within our community? Is that valuable to protect
our community from outside forces?

I don't see it quite like that. I don't think the policy is there because
I'm not trusted to make good decisions, I see it more as protecton from the
appearance that I am doing it.

I trust all of the Keystone cores and would have no issue lifting the
policy. The question is if that opens us up to scrutiny (or anything else)
from outside our development group. I don't know the history behind the
policy, so I can't answer that question.

I was able to put together an implementation[1] of DNS-SD loosely based on
RFC-6763[2]. It'd really a proof of concept, but we've talked so much about
it that I decided to get something working. Although if this seems like a
viable option then there's still much work to be done.

I'd love feedback.

uwsgi isn't a replacement for Apache. It's a replacement for mod_wsgi. It
just so happens that it does let you use user web servers if that's what
your usecase dictates.

As a Keystone developer I don't want to tell deployers that they have to
use Apache. It should be their choice. Since Apache is the most common web
server in our community I think we should continue to provide example
configurations and guidance for it.

This looks like the issue I just ran into. The newest os-client-config
depends on keystoneauth1 and this breaks openstackclient since it registers
its plugins under the keystoneclient entrypoint and not the keystoneauth1
entry point.

This is exactly true and Keystone should be deployable in an WSGI compliant
application server. If it's not I would consider it a bug.

Keystone doesn't use or require Apache. We recommend that it is deployed
using Apache, but there is no requirement to do that if you don't need to
use any Apache modules. For example, at least one of my devstack nodes
happily runs Keystone's manage_all.

This should only be true for optional features and currently require Apache

uwsgi and gunicorn should both work fine, as should any WSGI application
server. CherryPy and Twister are more framework than application server, so
I would not expect them to work.

[openstack-dev] [keystone] PTL Candidacy

2015-09-17 Thread David Stanek
Hello everyone,

I'd like to announce my candidacy for the Keystone PTL for the Mitaka cycle.
The project has had great leadership the entire time I have been involved
and
I want to keep up the tradition.

I've been working on Keystone for the past 2 years and I'd like to step up
and take more of a leadership role. I have a long track record of technical
leadership that can be directly applied to Keystone. This includes
everything
from project management to application architecture and many things in
between.

My thoughts on the direction of the project really boil down to landing the
features we have already committed to, taking our experimental features and
making them stable, improving general project stability and expanding our
community.

Goals for this cycle:

* Land the features

  Several features that are very beneficial to the community are currently
  in development. We need to get them stable and shipped for Mitaka. This
  includes, but is not limited to federation, reseller, and centralized
  policy. There is also additional work that needs to be done with
  federation to take it from experimental to stable, like helping other
  projects adapt to the new requirements and making it a first class
OpenStack
  feature.

* Fix the bugs

  We have 293 bugs (at the time of this writing) that need some attention.
  Many have patches that need some work or just need reviews. Others need
  to be investigated and fixed. I'd like to cut this number in half. To do
  that I'd like to get people to focus more on them through activities such
  as bug reviews and bug days (more on that below).

* Expand out testing

  Over the last two cycles we have made some significant advances in our
  testing practices. We need to expand on this cultural shift and even
expand
  the focus on testing.

  The full test runtime needs to be cut by at least 50% to improve developer
  workflow. Near immediate test feedback is important for not breaking flow
  when writing code. This can be accomplished by refactoring test code to
  reduce unnecessary setup and focus on the code being tested.

* Expand our community

  Being PTL isn't about me making all of the decisions or calling all of the
  shots. It's about facilitating the design and development of Keystone by
  working with the community. Through mentoring we can get more developers
  ready to be core to speed up our review pace. We need to work together to
  find ways to give more people the ability to contribute upstream. I do
  believe it's possible to make our thriving community even better.

Thank you for voting for me as your PTL for the Mitaka release cycle.

I don't know the complete history of this (I'm sure others can chime in
later), but since Keystone doesn't use the email address for anything it
was never really considered a first class attribute. It is just something
we accept and return through the API. It doesn't even have its own column
in the database.

I don't like this for a variety of reasons and we do have a bug[1] for
fixing this. Last Thursday several of us were discussing making a database
column for the email address as part of the fix for that bug.

 complex? (it should be launched from Fuel master node).


I'm reading this on a small phone, so I may have it wrong, but the script
appears to be broken.

It will ssh to node-1 and rotate. In the simplest case this takes key 0 and
moves it to the next highest key number. Then a new key 0 is generated.

Later there is a loop that will again ssh into node-1 and run the rotation
script. If there is a limit set on the number of keys and you are at that
limit a key will be deleted. This extra rotation on node-1 means that it's
possible that it has a different set of keys than are on node-2 and node-3.

What's the issue with just a simple rsync of the directory?

 Also, if we are going to use a delimiter, we need to update the way

This comment made me think of something (maybe crazy)...

I'm hoping that we are not expecting a client to understand how to create
the hierarchical representation of the fully qualified project name and
instead feed it to them in the JSON responses.

If this is the case we can probably control the delimiter on the server
side without the client even knowing that there is a delimiter. We could
have the first character of this new property actually contain the
delimiter used.

  .A.B.C - would mean that . is the delimiter
  - vs -
  #A#B#C - would mean that # is the delimiter

The challenge left is to figure out which delimiter to use.

Re: [openstack-dev] [nova][security] Enable user password complexity verification

  Thanks for this topic, also, I think it is similar situation when talking
 about keystone users, not only the instances's password.


In the past we've talked about having more advanced password management
features in Keystone (complexity checks, rotation, etc). The end result is
that we are not adding them because we would like to get away from managing
users in Keystone that way. Instead we are pushing for users to integrate
Keystone with more fully featured identity products.



 在 2015/6/3 17:48, 郑振宇 写道:

 Hi All,

  The current OpenStack does not provide user password complexity
 verification option.


   When performing actions such as create instances, evacuate instances,
 rebuild instances, rescue instances and update instances' admin password.
 The complexity of user provided admin password has not been verified. This
 can cause security problems.

  One solution will be adding a configuration option:
 using_complex_admin_password = True, if this option is set in configure
 file by administrator, then Nova will perform password complexity checks,
 the check standards can be set to following the IT industry general
 standard, if the provided admin password is not complex enough, an
 exception will be throw. If this option is not set in configure file, then
 the complexity check will be skipped.

  When the user dose not provide admin password, generate_password() in
 utils.py is used to generate an admin password. Generate_password() now
 uses two password symbol groups: default and easier, the default symbol
 group contains numbers, upper case letters and small case letters. the
 easier symbol group contains only numbers and upper case letters. The
 generated password is not complex enough and can also cause security
 problems.

  One possible solution is to add a new symbol group:
 STRONGER_PASSWORD_SYMBOLS which contains numbers, upper case letters, lower
 case letters and also special characters such as `~!@#$%^*()-_=+ and
 space. Then adding a new option in configuration file:
 generate_strong_password = True, when this option is set, nova will
 generate password using STRONGER_PASSWORD_SYMBOLS symbol group and with
 longer password length. If this option is not set, the password will be
 generated using the default symbol group and default length.

  AWS allows the selection of password policy to configure which kind of
 password complexity is used in the cloud. Please see:

 http://docs.aws.amazon.com/IAM/latest/UserGuide/Using_ManagingPasswordPolicies.html

  And about the standard of complexity, Microsoft also have an advise
 about it, please see:
 https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh994562%28v=ws.10%29.aspx

I don't like the idea of checking that coverage is increased. There are

There are two types of testing that I'm interested in really promoting in
Keystone. I want to see functional tests that only use the published APIs
to trigger and observe behavior. I also want to see unit tests that are
small, fast and that test the business logic of the system.

I started working[1] on functional testing in the Kilo cycle. The spec[2]
talks about standing up Keystone in different configurations (MySQL, LDAP,
Federated, etc.) and then running a set of tests against that instance.
This will allow us the test any backend we want and confirm it works the
way we expect Keystone to work.

On the other hand I want the unit tests to be smaller and faster. The job
of the unit tests should be to test small isolated bits of code and help
guide/evaluate the code design. Except to test the SQL backends I don't see
a need for using a database and even then I'd like to get by without it.


 I've done some work with extensive mocking of SQL databases; specifically
 mocking at the ORM level.  It is nice when you get it to run, but it's also
 a much bigger job to write fine-grained mocks like that, the mocks can be
 brittle in relation to the code they're targeting, and you also need to
 come up with some solution to actually functional test your database access
 code.

 I tend to think that having a mysqld service running is the lesser of two
 evils and you get a lot more code coverage by going all the way out to the
 DB.



The simplicity of the Keystone design is actually very good for dealing
with this (controller - manager - backend). Since backends are where the
actually query work happens we can easily provide a fake for each subsystem
that we want to test. This would allow us the test the business rules in
the manager without a database. The reason that is good is that we'd
probably be better off requiring LDAP (if anything) for some of the
subsystems since that is what they are typically configured to use. I would
rather just leave that level of detail to the functional tests.

  I am looking for feedback from the community on the general stance for
  SQLite, and more specifically the benefit (if any) of supporting it in
  Keystone.
  +1. Drop it and clean up tons of code used for support of sqlite only.
 
  Doing tests with mysql is as easy, as with sqlite (mysqladmin drop -f;
  mysqladmin create for reset), and using it by default will finally
 make
  people test their code on real rdbmses.
  Please please please be careful with that and make sure the database
  name is _always_ random in tests... or even better, write a fixture to
  spin up a mysqld inside a private tempdir. That would be a really cool
  thing for oslo.db to provide actually.
 
  I'm just thinking some poor sap runs the test suite with the wrong
  .my.cnf in the wrong place and poof there went keystone's db.
  The standard approach here is that tests based on the oslo.db approach
 by default connect using a username openstack_citest on localhost, which is
 then used to create databases of random names. If you base your database
 tests on oslo.db, you get that right now.   This username/host/etc is also
 configurable through environment variables.  I don't see how my.cnf is
 involved in this nor how it would impact someone's keystone database,
 unless we're talking about tests that happen to load down and/or crash the
 whole database server.
 
  spinning up a whole mysqld seems really heavy-handed and unnecessary.
 Not to mention the tests run on other backends as well such as Postgresql.
 

 The reasons outlined by both Clint and Mike are why we won't be attempting
 this until we are happy with our functional test suite. But once we are
 happy dropping SQLite is on the table. The way I see it the functional
 tests should be performed against a real keystone server, even if it is one
 spun up for testing specifically.

 Per test db creation / other such stuff will be part of that discussion.

 As you know, keystone introduced non-persistent tokens in kilo -- Fernet

 Please keep in mind that the solution should be HA -- there should not be

 might go
 down.


In my test environment I was using ansible to sync the keys across multiple

but I don't think it should deal with the actual syncing. I think that's
better left to an installation's existing configuration management tools.

The print function allows you to specify a file:

The __future__ import is needed for Python 2.6/2.7 because print was

There are probably a few other assumptions, but the main one is that the

 Hi Steve,

 Thanks for your response.  I am talking generally about the external
 auth support.  One use case is Kerberos, but for the sake of argument
 this could quite easily be Apache Basic auth.  The point is, we have
 current support for entrusting AuthN outside of Keystone.

 What I was trying to outline is that it seems that the current design
 of external auth is that keystone is not in the auth pipeline as we
 trust auth at the edge.  However, we then do additional auth within
 keystone.

 With external auth and SQL, we drop the user provided username and
 password on the floor and use what was provided in REMOTE_USER (set by
 the webserver).

 Therefore the check as it currently stands in SQL is basically 'is
 this username in the database'.  The LDAP plugin does Authentication
 via username and password, which is clearly not sufficient for
 external auth.  The LDAP plugin could be made to check in a similar
 manner to SQL 'is this a valid user' - but this would seem to be a
 duplicate check, as we already did this at the edge.

 If the webserver granted access to keystone, the user has already been
 checked to see if they are a valid user.  However, your response seems
 to suggest that current external auth should be formally deprecated?


I may be missing something, but can you use the external auth method with
the LDAP backend?

It looks like maybe WSME or Pecan is inspecting the method signature. Have you 
tried to change the order of the decorators?

 Hi,
  
 We have been struggling to get a decorator working for proposed new RBAC 
 functionality in ceilometer-api.  We’re hitting a problem where GET request 
 query parameters are mucked up by our decorator.  Here’s an example call:
  
 curl -H X-Auth-Token:$TOKEN 
 'http://localhost:8777/v2/meters?q.field=project_idq.value=8c678720fb5b4e3bb18dee222d7d7933'
  
 And here’s the decorator method (we’ve tried changing the kwargs, args, etc. 
 with no luck):
  
 _ENFORCER = None
  
 def protected(controller_class):
  
 global _ENFORCER
 if not _ENFORCER:
 _ENFORCER = policy.Enforcer()
  
 def wrapper(f):
 @functools.wraps(f)
 def inner(self, **kwargs):
 pdb.set_trace()
 self._rbac_context = {}
 if not _ENFORCER.enforce('context_is_admin',
  {},
  {'roles': 
 pecan.request.headers.get('X-Roles', ).split(,)}):
 self._rbac_context['project_id'] = 
 pecan.request.headers.get('X-Project-Id')
 self._rbac_context['user_id'] = 
 pecan.request.headers.get('X-User-Id')
 return f(self, **kwargs)
 return inner
 return wrapper
  
 tried this too:
  
 _ENFORCER = None
  
 def protected(*args):
  
 controller_class = 'meter'
 global _ENFORCER
 if not _ENFORCER:
 _ENFORCER = policy.Enforcer()
  
 def wrapper(f, *args):
 def inner(self, *args):
 pdb.set_trace()
 #self._rbac_context = {}
 #if not _ENFORCER.enforce('context_is_admin',
 # {},
 # {'roles': 
 pecan.request.headers.get('X-Roles', ).split(,)}):
 #self._rbac_context['project_id'] = 
 pecan.request.headers.get('X-Project-Id')
 #self._rbac_context['user_id'] = 
 pecan.request.headers.get('X-User-Id')
 #return f(*args)
 f(self, *args)
 return inner
 return wrapper
  
 and here’s how it’s used:
  
 class MetersController(rest.RestController):
 Works on meters.
  
 _rbac_context = {}
 @pecan.expose()
 def _lookup(self, meter_name, *remainder):
 return MeterController(meter_name), remainder
  
 @wsme_pecan.wsexpose([Meter], [Query])
 @rbac_validate.protected('meters')
 def get_all(self, q=None):
 Return all known meters, based on the data recorded so far.
  
 :param q: Filter rules for the meters to be returned.
 
 q = q or [] …
  
  
 but we get errors similar to below where the arg parser cannot find the query 
 parameter because the decorator doesn’t take a q argument as 
 MetersController.get_all does. 
  
 Is there any way to get a decorator to work within the v2 API code and wsme 
 framework or should we consider another approach?  Decorators would really 
 simplify the RBAC idea we’re working on, which is mostly code-implemented 
 save for this fairly major problem.
  
 I have a WIP registered BP on this 
 athttps://blueprints.launchpad.net/ceilometer/+spec/ready-ceilometer-rbac-keystone-v3.
  
 If I can provide more details I’ll be happy to.
  
 Thanks

  Hi Everyone,
 
  I apologize for the obtuse title, but there isn't a better succinct
 term to describe what is needed. OpenStack has no support for multiple
 owners of objects. This means that a variety of private cloud use cases are
 simply not supported. Specifically, objects in the system can only be
 managed on the tenant level or globally.
 
  The key use case here is to delegate administration rights for a group
 of tenants to a specific user/role. There is something in Keystone called a
 domain which supports part of this functionality, but without support
 from all of the projects, this concept is pretty useless.
 
  In IRC today I had a brief discussion about how we could address this.
 I have put some details and a straw man up here:
 
  https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/HierarchicalMultitenancy
 
  I would like to discuss this strawman and organize a group of people to
 get actual work done by having an irc meeting this Friday at 1600UTC. I
 know this time is probably a bit tough for Europe, so if we decide we need
 a regular meeting to discuss progress then we can vote on a better time for
 this meeting.
 
 
 https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Meetings#Hierarchical_Multitenancy_Meeting
 
  Please note that this is going to be an active team that produces code.
 We will *NOT* spend a lot of time debating approaches, and instead focus on
 making something that works and learning as we go. The output of this team
 will be a MultiTenant devstack install that actually works, so that we can
 ensure the features we are adding to each project work together.

 We'd like to get the keystoneclient tests out of keystone. They're
 serving a useful purpose of catching problems with non-backwards

 Problem is they're running at the wrong time -- only on changes to
 keystone and not changes to keystoneclient.

 The tests need to be run:

 When keystoneclient changes
  - run the tests against the change

 When the tests change
  - run the change against the current keystoneclient and also old clients

 When keystone changes
  - run the tests against the change with current client

 So here's what I think we need to do to get keystone client tests out
 of keystone:

  1) Figure out where to put the tests - is it tempest or something else?
  2) Write up a test and put it there
  3) Have a job that when there's a change in the tests it runs against
 current client lib
  4) Expand the job to also run against old clients
 - or is there 1 job per version?
 - what versions? (keystone does master, essex-3, and 0.1.1)
 - e.g. tox -e master,essex-3,0.1.1
 - suggest start with these versions and then consider what to use
 in future
  5) Now we can start adding tests
  6) Have a job that when there's a change in keystoneclient it runs
 these tests against the change
  7) When there's a change in keystone, run these tests against the change
  8) Copy the keystoneclient tests from keystone to the new location --
 will require some changes
  9) Remove the tests from keystone \o/
 10) Move tests back to keystone where makes sense -- use webtest like
 v3 tests

 I created an etherpad with this same info so it's easier to discuss:
 https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/KeystoneTestsToTempest

 - Brant


 I'll ask the super obvious question, why not move the keystoneclient tests
 to keystoneclient?


I believe Brant is talking about the tests that use different versions of
the keystone client against the keystone server.

I don't think that there is much work to be done beyond getting that pull

I'm working on some test code and came up with what I think is a valid use
of a line ending in \.  I'm not escaping the newline from a Python syntax
point of view.  I'm doing in inside of a string literal.  Example:

mismatches_description = textwrap.dedent(\
expected = test xmlns=http://docs.openstack.org/identity/api/v2.0

  success/
/test

actual = test xmlns=http://docs.openstack.org/identity/api/v2.0;

/test
)

This can be written in several different ways, but I think that none of
them is as clear as the trailing slash.  This is, I think, the clearest
alternative example:

mismatches_description = textwrap.dedent(
expected = test xmlns=http://docs.openstack.org/identity/api/v2.0

  success/
/test

actual = test xmlns=http://docs.openstack.org/identity/api/v2.0;
  nope_it_fails/
/test
).lstrip()

Would this use be forbidden too?

 Another one that comes into this category is adding a -1 which just says

 It's an unfortunate consequence of counting and publishing review stats

I agree that having no comment with a +1 is OK.  If I think the code looks
good I'll +1 it.  If I think the code could be better I'll -1 it and leave
comments.

I don't think that leaving a -1 with a 'what they said' comment is a bad
thing.  As the developer writing the patch it's helpful to know there is a
consensus and it's not just one person requesting a change.

 Huh, I did not see that go by. Python already has built in signalling
 for deprecated features; I think we should be using that. We can of
 course wrap it with a little sugar to make it easy to encode future
 deprecations.


The initial patch used the the warnings modules instead of using the
deprecated logging provided by oslo.  We talked about it IRC and I switched
because there existed a way to do deprecation messaging is olso and it had
a configurable way to turn warnings into exceptions.

I intend to submit a patch to oslo-incubator based off of the above patch.
 I'd love to get some feedback about the needs of the other projects.

 Can you go into the specifics of why?


We use unsafe paths for the test SQLite database and test config files.
 Instead of using something like tempfile we are using hardcoded paths.
 When the setUp method is run in parallel it will stomp on other tests.  I
believe the 'git clone' is the same way.  The clone happens in the setUp so
if you have 2 test methods in that test class one of the cloning operations
will break.

I have a bug filed for the DB/config file issue already.  The cloning issue
may solved by putting it into the setupClass instead of setUp.  I'd have to
try it.

 But I think what you're saying is missing is the stack trace from the

 As I understood it, Python doesn't have a way of chaining exceptions
 like this but e.g. Java does. A little bit more poking right now shows
 up this:

   http://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-3134/

 i.e. we can't do the right thing until Python 3, where we'd do:

  def download_image(host, port, path):
  try:
  s = socket.create_connection((host, port))
  except socket.error as e:
  raise ImageDownloadFailure(host, port, path, e.strerror) from e

 I haven't read the PEP in detail yet, though.


You can actually do this in Python 2 and keep the original context:

  def download_image(host, port, path):
  try:
  s = socket.create_connection((host, port))
  except socket.error as e:
  raise ImageDownloadFailure, e, sys.exc_info()[-1]

This will keep the original message and stack trace, but change the type.
 You can also change the message if you want my mucking with e's message.
 I've done that to add a string like  (socket.error) at the end of the
exception message so I could see the original type.

If you really, really wanted to use a bare except you could also do
something like:

  try:
  do_something_that_raises_an_exception()
  except:
  exc_value, exc_tb = sys.exc_info()[1:]
  raise MyException, exc_value, exc_tb
