Hi Bryan,

Hi, I have a question about where to find the complete set of currently supported data drivers (with table/row details) for Congress. The info at http://congress.readthedocs.org/en/latest/cloudservices.html#drivers<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__congress.readthedocs.org_en_latest_cloudservices.html-23drivers&d=AwMFAw&c=Sqcl0Ez6M0X8aeM67LKIiDJAXVeAw-YihVMNtXt-uEs&r=B6BWd4kFfgOzAREgThxkmTZKy7dDXE2-eBAmL0PBK7s&m=7K6Tq1uqgCY-gmJMedkayeCZgjUEWp7QD_HaJg6pHmY&s=rEUZxD7aLCxwILxm2ugsR4Qr-4JXCdZ_-9BWcvG5F_k&e=> seems to cover only Nova and Neutron.  I'm sure that I can pull this info from the source at https://github.com/stackforge/congress/tree/master/congress/datasources<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__github.com_stackforge_congress_tree_master_congress_datasources&d=AwMFAw&c=Sqcl0Ez6M0X8aeM67LKIiDJAXVeAw-YihVMNtXt-uEs&r=B6BWd4kFfgOzAREgThxkmTZKy7dDXE2-eBAmL0PBK7s&m=7K6Tq1uqgCY-gmJMedkayeCZgjUEWp7QD_HaJg6pHmY&s=XeNw_NiKGg3HrR5R6oVbN9EVV2RhB3CQ4waMWGvBAHM&e=> but I was looking for any documentation on the current state of that code's design. The existing blueprints (e.g. at https://github.com/stackforge/congress-specs)<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__github.com_stackforge_congress-2Dspecs-29&d=AwMFAw&c=Sqcl0Ez6M0X8aeM67LKIiDJAXVeAw-YihVMNtXt-uEs&r=B6BWd4kFfgOzAREgThxkmTZKy7dDXE2-eBAmL0PBK7s&m=7K6Tq1uqgCY-gmJMedkayeCZgjUEWp7QD_HaJg6pHmY&s=AjqWychcmYYsMd9oOGytLq3rXOqzhJGLbUTi2OuX2_0&e=> do not go into this detail AFAICT.

I’d definitely just do a directory listing on the source code.  Syncing the docs is something we do before a major release.  Things are just changing too quickly to do anything else.

Also, since I'm looking into how the current supported Congress tables will support use cases of the OPNFV Copper project [1], it will be also helpful to know where I would look for the set of potential policy-related data items inside OpenStack docs/code for the various components. If I find a gap against a use case, I would want to be able to specify related patches (e.g. where data source driver extensions should get the additional data) so I need to know where the data comes from (and what's available) inside OpenStack.

One of Congress’s goals is to make any data available via an API call to policy-related.  So anything the API calls of OpenStack returns are reasonable candidates for writing policy over.
