>> Hi everyone,
>> We have an issue [1] in python-novaclient 2.32.0 where it's not working
>> with rackspace cloud.
>> It's caused by a commit [2] that changed the default requested compute
>> API version from "latest" to "client supported latest", a specific version.
>> We have some logic in the discover_version method that does comparisons
>> between a user-specified version and the server version. For rackspace, we
>> get a "null" server version because the version list API isn't exposed. The
>> discover_version falls back on compute API 2.0 when requested version is
>> "latest" and server version is "null" but raises an error when requested
>> version is "user-specified" and server version is "null". So more work is
>> needed there to handle cases where version API isn't exposed.
>> Should we revert [2] for now? Any other thoughts?
>> Thanks,
