This feature is to provide canonical name mapping for Heat templates with official Documentation names for OpenStack projects

Registered by Keith Bray on 2014-02-26

To align with OpenStack documentation of the naming of services, we should alias Heat resources to allow for more than the project name so that we also support the service name. For example, we should support the resource name "OS::Compute::Server" as a valid resource name in addition to "OS::Nova::Server". The ones I would like to support are:

OS::Nova::Server --> OS::Compute::Server
OS::Nova::KeyPair --> OS::Compute::KeyPair
OS::Nova::FloatingIP --> OS::Compute::FloatingIP
OS::Nova::FloatingIPAssociation --> OS::Compute::FloatingIPAssociation

OS::Swift::Container --> OS::ObjectStorage::Container

OS::Cinder::Volume --> OS::BlockStorage::Volume
OS::Cinder::VolumeAttachment --> OS::BlockStorage::Volume

OS::Neutron::*** --> OS::Networking::***

The OpenStack docs I am referring to are: http://docs.openstack.org/
The list of current Heat resources are documented here: http://docs.openstack.org/developer/heat/template_guide/index.html
