Many thanks for the constructive approach. I've added an item to the
list for the Ops meetup in March to see who would be interested to help.
As discussed on the change, it is likely that there would need to be
some additional Nova APIs added to support the full EC2 semantics.
Thus, there would need to support from the Nova team to enable these
additional functions. Having tables in the EC2 layer which get out of
sync with those in the Nova layer would be a significant problem in
I think this would merit a good slot in the Vancouver design sessions
so we can also discuss documentation, migration, packaging,
configuration management, scaling, HA, etc.

Our team can take the effort. We're the ones doing the stackforge

If you can give us any permissions and leverage to not just
contribute fixes and tests but also have a say in approval of
those (maybe to just one of us) then it'll be fast. Otherwise
it'll happen in due time but our previous attempts to contribute
some fixes for EC2 API in nova took usually more than half a year
to get through.

I suspect the correct plan is to work on getting the stackforge
replacement finished, and ensuring that it is feature
the Nova implementation. However, I don't want to preempt the
process -- there might be other ways forward here.
I feel that a continued discussion which just repeats the last 18
months wont actually fix the situation -- its time to "break
that mode and find other ways to try and get someone working
