The goal is to have a standard way of representing *qualitative* aspects of resources. So while we are not actively trying to make this a placement engine for all OpenStack services yet, the goal is to not be Nova-specific, so that once we have this up and running, we can offer it as a general placement service for any other project that has such needs.

The main work being done now is on moving Nova from hard-coded CPU, disk, etc., to use Resource Provider classes instead. You can see the current work at https://review.openstack.org/#/q/status:open+project:openstack/nova+branch:master+topic:bp/generic-resource-pools

You can also join the scheduler subteam meeting Mondays at 1400 UTC in @openstack-meeting-alt, where we discuss our current efforts. If you have a specific question or topic to bring up, add it to the meeting agenda at https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Meetings/NovaScheduler.
