reviews required, etc.[0]

I've always said that Glance is one of those critical projects that not many
people notice until it breaks. It's in every OpenStack cloud sitting in a
and allowing for VMs to be booted. So, before things get even worse, I'd
like us to brainstorm a bit on what solutions/options we have now.

How do people feel about adding Glance to the list of "help wanted" areas of

Would it be possible to get help w/ reviews from folks from teams like
nova/cinder/keystone? Any help is welcomed, of course, but I'm trying to
about teams that may be familiar with the Glance code/api already.
