Hi Viktor,

I just submitted the patch, adding you as co-author with the email address

The patch is even easier compared to what you sent as all we need is to add

The OpenStack patch workflow is not that complicated if you’re already familiar

In particular it'd be great if you could sign online the contributor license
agreement, it's just a matter of having a Launchpad account and doing a 
couple of clicks.
