[openstack-dev] MySQL charset collation for `db sync` commands

I notified Glance (and probably other projects) are running the db_sync
with 'utf8_general_ci' by default.

* Can we change it? I've looked in Glance & oslo.db, I've not seen anything.
* Can we configure it to stop enforcing this collation? Some deployments
are running 'utf8_unicode_ci'
* why 'utf8_general_ci' ? I've seen it's less accurate at sorting, but

Please tell me if I'm wrong and if we can already change it somewhere in

If you are interested by my exact context, it affects our Puppet
modules: https://bugs.launchpad.net/puppet-glance/+bug/1446375

Thank you,
Emilien Macchi
