Excerpts from Morales, Victor's message of 2016-12-02 19:07:25 +0000:
> Hey there, 
> There is a mismatch of namespaces in neutron which uses AGENT and agent which is addressed by Ihar in the patch[1].  That raised the question is olo-config-generator should be normalize this namespaces, maybe(with my limited knowledge of oslo.conf) this change can be placed in _clean_opts function[2].  I personally like what Doug is suggesting[3], emitting a warning where is mixing case, which at least give us an idea of places where is having the same issue and eventually normalize them.  Any thoughts on this?

That _cleanup_opts() function looks like a good place to do the
normalization to all lower-case. Remember that "DEFAULT" is properly all
upper-case, though.
