[openstack-dev] [all] Any projects using sqlalchemy-utils?

I'm fine with discarding it (since said support is only for posgres 
anyway afaik), if it's causing issues for (packaging) folks and nobody 
else in openstack really uses it either.

Let's see what folks think,

On another note (if not many projects are using it); I think it would be 
nice to try to use it more in other projects, since afaik mysql and 
postgres are both getting/now have native json support and afaik 
sqlalchemy-utils is the current way to support said native types. And a 
lot of openstack stores json blobs (metadata...) in text fields (when 
they really could start to move toward the native json field types) so 
its usage would seem appropriate,

But if it's to much of a pain to package for not much adoption, then 
that's ok to.
