[openstack-dev] [ironic] python-wsmanclient future

Hi folks!

In view of the Ironic governance discussion [1] I'd like to talk about 
wsmanclient [2] future.

This project was created to split away wsman code from python-dracclient to be 
reused in other drivers (I can only think of AMT right now). This was never 
finished: dracclient still uses its internal wsman implementation.

To make it worse, the guy behind this effort (ifarkas) has left our team, 
python-dracclient is likely to leave Ironic governance per [1], and the AMT 
driver is going to leave the Ironic tree.

At least the majority of the folks currently behind dracclient (Miles, Lucas and 
myself) do not have resources to continue this wsmanclient effort. Unless 
somebody is ready to take over both wsmanclient itself and the effort to port 
dracclient, I suggest we abandon wsmanclient.

Any thoughts?
