Project: Keystone
Attendees: 12 - 15

We conflicted with one of the Baremetal/VM sessions

I attempted to document most of the session in my recap [0].

We started out by doing a round-the-room of introductions so that folks
could put IRC nicks to faces (we also didn't have a packed room so this
went pretty quick). After that we cruised through a summary of keystone,
the format of the projects, and the various processes we use. All of this
took *maybe* 30 minutes.

>From there we had an open discussion and things evolved organically. We
ended up going through:

   - the differences between the v2.0 and v3 APIs
   - keystonemiddleware architecture, how it aids services, and how it
   interacts with keystone
      - we essentially followed an API call for creating a instance from
      keystone -> nova -> glance
   - how authentication scoping works and why it works that way
   - how federation works and why it's setup the way it is
   - how federated authentication works (https://goo.gl/NfY3mr)

All of this was pretty well-received and generated a lot of productive
discussion. We also had several seasoned keystone contributors in the room,
which helped a lot. Most of the attendees were all curious about similar
topics, which was great, but we totally could have split into separate
groups given the experience we had in the room (we'll save that in our back
pocket for next time).
