[openstack-dev] [trove][mistral] scheduled tasks

I've begun working on the scheduled tasks feature that will allow automated backups (and other things) in trove.

Here's the blueprint:

I've heard some mention that mistral might be an option rather than building something into trove.  I did some research and it seems like it *might* be a good fit, but it also seems like a bit of overkill for something that could be built in to trove itself pretty easily.  There's also the security concern of having to give mistral access to the trove management API in order to allow it to fire off backups and other tasks on behalf of users, but maybe that's just my personal paranoia and it's really not much of a concern.

My current plan is to not use mistral, at least for the original implementation, because it's not yet ready and we have a fairly urgent need for the functionality.  We could make it an optional feature later for people who are running mistral and want to use it for this purpose.

I'd appreciate any and all feedback before I get too far along.
