  • Guidance for drivers that use external libs [DuncanT]
    • Prompted by https://review.openstack.org/#/c/337093/
    • We should write up some guidance for drivers that make use of external python libraries in their drivers
    • I suggest something along the lines of "External (PIP installable) python libraries can be used by drivers, providing they use a license that allows them to be freely repackaged and redistributed (to allow downstream packages freedom to package as they need). Libraries should be limited to general device operations, not cinder specific details, which should remain in the driver. For example, the external library should not need to import cinder files."
