[openstack-dev] [charms] inclusion of charm-helpers (LGPL licensed)

Hi All

Whilst working on the re-licensing of the OpenStack charms to Apache 2.0,
its apparent that syncing and inclusion of the charm-helpers python module
directly into the charm is not going to work from a license compatibility
perspective. charm-helpers is LGPL v3 (which is OK for a runtime dependency
of an OpenStack project - see [0]).

We already have a plan in place to remove the inclusion of charm-helpers
for execution of functional tests, but we need to come up with a solution
to the runtime requirement for charm-helpers, preferably one that does not
involve direct installation at deploy time from either pypi or from

Thoughts? ideas?
