OpenStack Compute (Nova)

Move all functionality out of nova manage and into APIs

Registered by Sean Dague on 2012-09-17

The general direction is that nova-manage should be deprecated for everything except the db-sync command. There are however pieces of functionality needed for OpenStack, like ip pool creation, which only exist in nova-manage. That should be moved out into the API by enhancing existing extensions so that nova-manage no longer contains functions which don't exist anywhere else.
