[openstack-dev] [oslo] dependency analysis for graduating more oslo libraries

Very nice write up +1

A question, many modules are pulling in oslo.log as seen from the dependency graph which itself then pulls in oslo.config. Is the plan to just have all these modules use the regular python logging and have oslo.log be a plugin/formatter/adapter to python logging?

Likely people that would use those libraries and that aren't tied to openstack want to provide/configure there own logging (which is normally done via python logging configuration files and such...)

A side question: what are all these libraries going to be named, seems like we need a lot of creative library names (not just prefix everything with oslo) :-)

I've spent some time over the past day or two looking at the dependencies between modules in the oslo incubator, trying to balance the desire to have a small number of libraries with themes that make sense and the need to eliminate circular dependencies.

The results of all of this are posted to https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Oslo/GraduationStatus, where I have grouped the modules together into proposed libraries.

The dependencies between the libraries can be seen in several graphs I've prepared and posted to https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Oslo/Dependencies

Once we settle on the list of libraries, the next step is to look at the lowest level libraries to see what steps need to be taken before they can be released. I plan to start on that after the icehouse-2 deadline.

Oslo team (and other interested parties), please take a look at the two wiki pages above and provide any feedback you have here on this ML thread.
