Fixed In Version: openstack-glance-2014.1.1-2.el7ost.src.rpm
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
With this update, Image Service (glance) is now dependent on oslo.vmware in order to support the optional VMware store. This hard dependency was created due to the likelihood that the dependencies are already installed and due to the diminutive size of the package. As a result, the user experience is improved by no longer requiring a manual oslo.vmware install.

Comment 2 Flavio Percoco 2014-07-31 06:30:21 UTC
I'm hesitant to make python-oslo-vmware a hard dependency because it's not enabled by default. I'm open to suggestions here.

@apevec we've had this kind of dilemmas with other packages, what do you recommend?

Comment 3 Alan Pevec 2014-07-31 08:27:25 UTC
Indeed, RPM is missing Suggests for optional dependencies, so they're left to the deployer or installer to take care of.

But strictly speaking, we should have Requires: python-FOO if we ship code which has "imports FOO" even if not loaded in the default configuration.

In this specific case, python-oslo-vmware runtime deps are nothing fancy, so it's fine to add it as a hard dep to openstack-glance.
