As you could see in [1], ansible is notorious with it's GPL v3
license. I have question about having single module in Kolla-ansible
project that will be GPL v3.

Kolla is licensed as Apache v2 all across the board today. To
implement one of highly requested features we would need to develop
so-called strategy plugin for ansible, and I can't see any reasonable
way to do it without touching GPL v3 code.

While I wouldn't mind having single GPL v3 licensed module in Kolla,
and this particular use case doesn't seem to affect licensing of other
parts of our project, I would like to ask for second opinion before we
run into legal issues.
