[openstack-dev] Barbican : Dependency of pyenv configuration in Barbican.sh script

Hi All,

I would like to know the reason behind the dependency of the pyenv virtual
environment and pyenv in the barbican.sh script.
Ideally in the production environment  , barbican would run on standalone
virtual box with a particular python version .I feel that their dependecies
needs to be removed from the script.

Was able to stand up the barbican instance without configuring pyenv and
pyenv-virtualenv dependencies  by modifying the barbican script ,
installing few additional packages and exporting the python path to PATH
Please find the change in barbican.sh script for installation and starting
of the script below :

VENV_DIR=${VIRTUAL_ENV:-`pyenv prefix`} -> *This line needs to be removed *
uwsgi --master --emperor $CONFIG_DIR/vassals* -H*  *$VENV_DIR -> The
variable need to be removed as an argument and -H as an option.*

The barbican script has been tied to $VENV_DIR variable which is dependent
on the pyenv  for python configuration.Hence the barbican.sh  script needs
to be  modified to remove *$VENV_DIR variable  *by configuring python path
in PATH variable.
On doing this , we can avoid the sourcing the pyenv and pyenv-virtualenv
packages  and its dependices on Barbican script.

Any help would be highly appreciated and also would like to know opinion
from the openstack group  on the changes indicated
Thanks in advance

*Thanks and Regards,*
