Thx Brian,

Sounds good. I will do my best to show-up.

>From looking at the commit @
fb917#L4R265 there does seem to be quite a bit of similarity (which isn't
a bad thing, means we are just thinking on the same lines).
kends/sqlalchemy/models.py#L147 looks a lot like the storage model in that
commit (even some of the same attributes, haha) ;)

Also if you are thinking that the distributed stuff might be overkill (idk
if it is for your use-case) taskflow can also be setup to just run the
tasks in your own backend without pulling in the celery components.

Jump on #openstack-state-management if u want to also :-)
