Hello Everyone,

Code Ready for Review: 
1. Specifying az when restore shelved server 
- Topic: https://review.opendev.org/#/q/topic:bp/support-specifying-az-when-restore-shelved-server+(status:open+OR+status:merged) 
- Weekly Progress: This has been rebased as 2.75 microversion is already merged. This will need again rebase as 2.76 is reserved for 'Add 'power-update' external event'

grabbing 2.76. I do not have updates on the current state, maybe matt or surya can add more if needed.
