[openstack-dev] [Ironic] Adopting ironic-lib in Ironic

Hi All,

Some time back we created a new repository[1] to move all the reusable code
components of Ironic to a separate library.  The branched out code has
changed and there has been a review out to sync it [2].  But unfortunately,
it has got stale again as some more changes have gone in to the branched
out code.  To avoid repeated efforts of such syncing, I suggest we sync the
latest code from Ironic to ironic-lib (in appropriate files) and
immediately change Ironic to start using it.

I suggest we can do the following:
1) Decide on a timeline for the change (1 or 2 days)
2) Stop +Aing changes in Ironic to the files/code being moved to ironic-lib
3) Sync the latest code in ironic-lib and merge it
4) Make a new release of ironic-lib
5) Make changes in Ironic to use ironic-lib and make sure gate is back up
and running again (I can't think of anything that will break gate on
switching to ironic-lib as it's just a pip install)
6) Make new reviews in ironic-lib for any pending reviews in Ironic

If we come to an agreement on #1 and #2 above, Syed Ismail Faizan Barmawer
can continue to work on #3 - #5

Let me know if it will work out or if there are any better plans (or I am
missing something)
