Embedding version information in Quantum

Registered by Brad Hall on 2011-11-18

We need the ability to tell what version of Quantum a given instance is. Two items would be useful:

1) A cli command flag (i.e. quantum-server --version)
2) A GET wsapi call (GET /ws.v1/version)

Both should return the same thing.

Ideally we would just set the version once in setup.py and it would end up embedded in the code during the build process.

Whiteboard

I created a bug to track better "--version" output: https://bugs.launchpad.net/quantum/+bug/1004966

I would argue that the API should only report what API versions are supported, not necessarily the back-end quantum version number. The API already reports supported API versions via a GET on "/"

(?)
