I've seen a few bugs/reviews like this  lately which are essentially backporting fixes from the nova openstack v3 API to the v2 API. While this is goodness for the v2 API, I'm not sure why we're spending time on low priority bug fixes like this for the v2 API when v3 is the future. Shouldn't only high impact / high probability fixes get backported to the nova v2 API now? I think most people are still using v2 so they are probably happy to get the fixes, but it kind of seems to prolong the inevitable.
Am I missing something?
The V2 API is going to be with us for quite a while even if the as planned V3 API becomes official with
the icehouse release. At the moment the V2 API is still even open for new features - this will probably
change at the end of I-2.
I agree those bugs are quite low priority fixes and the V3 work is a lot more important, but I don't think we should blocking
them yet. We should perhaps reconsider the acceptance of very low priority fixes like you reference towards or at the end of
[Gary] I agree, we should not be blocking these. I think that we should pay attention to issues that are just dealt with in V2 and make sure that those are actually addressed in V3.
