As a part of our upgrades to Newton we are transitioning our services to use pymysql rather than the deprecated MySQL-Python [1]. I believe pymsql has been the default in devstack and the gate for sometime now and that MySQL-Python is essentially untested and not updated, hence our desire to switch.

devstack is one thing, but I'm curious if anyone has experience operating in production with this, especially if there are issues. I've not seen anything in testing but if anyone else has I'd love to know positive or negative.

As a data point, OpenStack-Ansible switched to using pymysql by default for Liberty. We’ve had no negative feedback from any deployers using OSA as far as I know.
