[openstack-dev] Nova gate currently broken

Dina's analysis is a good one.

Basically oslo.messaging *completely violated* oslo-incubator rules and
updated common code in their tree. Then shipped a release, then broke
anyone trying to use them. This is actually very not cool.

This was not caught in the gate because the only thing that tickles this
is currently something which actually tries to touch all the config
options, and includes oslo.messaging, which is nova's config generator,
in the nova pep8 job.

Currently in the devstack/gate we aren't doing anything with code which
touches the ca_file option, which means python's lazy loading isn't ever
catching / exploding there.

The immediate fix is to block 1.3.0a8 -

The longer term is to actually come up with a gate job which tests for
these kinds of incompatibilities in a live environment.

I also really think we need to revisit this idea of config options
getting declared inside oslo-incubator. Because at 5 source trees this
was manageable, but with the current number of projects including the
incubator, the upgrade process for something like this becomes crazy
really fast. This is just the tip of the iceberg as we go to carving up
the incubator more.
