Worth noting that there have been a few cases of projects patching
OSLO bugs intheir own tree rather than fixing in OSLO then resyncing.
If anybody has any tooling that can detect that, I'd love to see the

I'm generally of the opinion that cinder is likely to be resistant to
more parts of OSLO being used in cinder unless they are a proper
library - syncs have caused us significant pain, code churn, review
load and bugs in the last 12 months. I am but one voice among many,
but I know I'm not the only member of core who feels this to be the
case. Hopefully I can spend some time with OSLO core at the summit and
discuss the problems I've found.
