[amrith] These are the patches that merged into Kilo

[amrith] Yes, it is a schema change. See https://review.openstack.org/#/c/115811/

[amrith] The change to the API is not that complex; it changes flavor from an int to a string and adds logic that knows how to tell one from the other.

[amrith] Yes. On a nova boot call for example, you could specify flavor-id thusly:

  --flavor <flavor>             Name or ID of flavor (see 'nova flavor-list').

With Trove (prior to this fix) you could only specify the ID which would be an integer.

[amrith] I agree. But I would appreciate input from others as well.
