[openstack-dev] [openstack-tc] Incubation Request for Barbican

Hello folks,

I've created a blueprint to move over to oslo.messaging per Jarret's comments below: https://blueprints.launchpad.net/barbican

I'd also note that out of the box barbican does not use celery in order to simplify demo/standalone deployments...asynchronous calls simply invoke their worker tasks directly.

As mentioned in the other thread, Barbican will be looking at oslo messaging
for Icehouse.

In the meantime, you can configure celery to use a pass-through (e.g. no
queue needed). This is the configuration we use for dev / testing. The
documentation for that can be found in the celery docs here:
