The cells v2 effort is going to be introducing a new database into
Nova. This has been an opportunity to rethink and approach a few things
differently, including how we should handle migrations. There have been
discussions for a long time now about switching over to alembic for
migrations so I want to ask, should we start using alembic from the
start for this new database?
The question was first raised by Dan Smith on
I do have some concern about having two databases managed in two
different ways, but if the details are well hidden behind a nova-manage
command I'm not sure it will actually matter in practice.
