Hi, Operators,

There are some complain about nova policy configuration is hard to use. 
I'm plan to improve it.
So I wrote down several improvement at specs:

But I still hope to get feedback from Operators about those improvement 
is really easy your life.
And after we improvement those policy stuff, it need upgrade your policy 
configuration when you
upgrade the code. Also hope those won't bring too much trouble to you.

For reduce the pain when upgrade, the basic rule is we try to keep the 
nova V2 REST API work
as before. Because it will be depreciated after we have V2.1 API. For v2 
api, it only a few update
because we remove some db layer hard-code permission checks. For EC2 and 
v2.1 api, there
will be a lot of change, because the policy name is changed. But I guess 
there isn't anyone run
v2.1 api now. The more detail is describe in the specs. Thanks for any
