not sure this was published anywhere but for those using devstack 
plugins, a patch merged recently[1], to take action on this. you'll need 
to switch SERVICE_TENANT_NAME to SERVICE_PROJECT_NAME. a backward compat 
patch[2] is available but we should all change.

glad to see we're moving forward on this.
