Description of problem:
A .conf file with a comprehensive set of configuration options should be shipped various nova services. Here is a good example to work from:

This one looks like it's more up-to-date:
Swift is of course special and its sample configs are not that useful as in other projects which use cfg and have autogenerated conf samples with doc comments: https://github.com/openstack/swift/tree/master/etc
So this will require some upstream work, ideally to convert Swift to use oslo-cfg, and minimally to add doc comments in sample configs manually.

I find the complete configs for Swift rather unweildy and difficult to
edit, although they would not be without precendent. Look at sample
configs for things like Postfix and Apache.
Still, I question my own ability to maintain them in 100% coherence
with the reality. I barely have cycles to audit changes to upstream
configs that we repackage as foo-sample.
Nicola, do you think you could be satisfied with better redirection
to comprehensive sample configs that we already install? Please see
the attached patch.

Looks good enough, it synces what upstream currently has in etc/*-sample but ideally upstream could improve the samples and add more documentation comments.
Even more ideally, upstream would switch to oslo.config and generate samples from the code, like Nova does https://github.com/openstack/nova/tree/master/tools/conf
conf files (although not hight detailed) exists:
