Novaclient currently lives on github, but it is a core part of Nova as it is required for Zones. Do we think it's time to bring it in from the cold? Issues: 1. a client that tracks the bleeding edge of dev 2. importance of an externally maintained client tool 3. linkage ... how to integrate That said, the overall design of novaclient to nova is a very laborious process. There are other design possibilities that we'd like to talk about as well. So, our secondary agenda is: Explore a new implementation of Novaclient: - rebrand as OpenStack Compute Client and lose Nova-specific functionality? - should we base it on an IDL or continue with the existing approach? - what limitations will there be if we choose to convert to an IDL-based implementation?
