Add package for openstack-java-sdk - OpenStack Java SDK
Last modified: 2016-02-10 12:56:14 EST
Description of problem:
Add package for openstack-java-sdk in the RHEV:
Contingency plan if this is not accepted is to implement our own openstack rest-api java client.
If this is meant for 3.3, I have no problem adding this to RHEV. Would you be the maintainer, Federico?
The Version and Milestone fields indicate 3.2 Beta 3 however, which is supposed to be released today. I do have a problem with that. :)
openstack-java-sdk added to Brew/dist-git for 3.3.
we need to split this to a separate rpm. it doesn't make sense to bundle it in the engine package. if anything we are trying to make it smaller/modular.
We introduced the rhevm-dependencies package in order to have all 3rd party dependencies that are missing from rhel within one maintainable package to be updated when 3rd party dependency needs to be updated.
There is no gain in maintaining any of these dependencies within its own rpm as it only distributes the efforts between multiple maintainers.
The assumption is that at rhel-7 we inherit these packages from fedora, and remove the usage of our provided jars.
The only advantage of providing 3rd party dependency is to build it from source, while once again, this gap will be closed at rhel-7 when inherited from fedora along with the new maven support for rpmbuild.
I suggest keeping the current state we reached, which is quite stable and manageable both in term of maintenance and in term of license management.
This package is *in* rhevm dependencies
