The lowest common denominator of all COEs is an remarkably low value API that adds considerable complexity to Magnum that will not strategically advance OpenStack. If we instead focus our effort on making the COEs work better on OpenStack, that would be a winning strategy. Support and compliment our various COE ecosystems.
I'm with Adrian on that one. I've attended a lot of container-oriented
conferences over the past year and my main takeaway is that this new
crowd of potential users is not interested (at all) in an
OpenStack-specific lowest common denominator API for COEs. They want to
take advantage of the cool features in Kubernetes API or the versatility
of Mesos. They want to avoid caring about the infrastructure provider
bit (and not deploy Mesos or Kubernetes themselves).
Let's focus on the infrastructure provider bit -- that is what we do and
what the ecosystem wants us to provide.
