Subject Re: Serious problem with OpenStack rocky and jclouds GlanceApi
Date Sun, 09 Dec 2018 17:17:10 GMT
Hi Fritz,

That is indeed a real issue, and the main blocker to have it implemented is
the availability of volunteer time to develop that. Currently, no one in
the jclouds team is actually paid to work on jclouds. The project is a 100%
volunteer effort, which makes it difficult to commit to concrete

Personally, I don't have enough cycles right now to implement it, but I
would be very happy to provide guidance, help and work with anyone that
would like to lead this. Implementing an API like Glance isn't be an
extremely difficult task (we've had GSoC students implement several jclouds
APIs), so it should not be a scary thing to tackle if anyone wants to step
