There is agreement from all distributions bar one on this approach so far, so I’d like to dig into this approach more to see if we can find a solution that works for everyone.
Thomas, do I understand the problem correctly that if we considered these sample files then the complexity for Debian appears to be that it would not want the sample config files in, for example, /usr/share/nova but instead in /usr/share/nova-common ? Is the use of the –common directory something that’s Debian specific, or do any other distributions do it?
