Widget for managing glance metadata dictionary

Registered by Gabriel Hurley on 2012-10-23

There are many cases where an unbounded number of additional "tags" or metadata key-value pairs are supported, but there's no good way to manage these in Horizon. We need to provide a reusable widget for this type of interface.

Glance is adding a metadata definitions catalog targeted for Juno. This is a common API hosted by the Glance service for vendors, admins, services, and users to meaningfully describe and share key-value pair and tag metadata. The intent is to enable better metadata collaboration across artifacts services, and projects for OpenStack users.

This blueprint will implement a common widget for tags and metadata key-value pairs that leverages the new Glance service.
