[openstack-dev] [keystone][all] Reseller - do we need it?

Hey folks,

The reseller use case [0] has been popping up frequently in various
discussions [1], including unified limits.

For those who are unfamiliar with the reseller concept, it came out of
early discussions regarding hierarchical multi-tenancy (HMT). It
essentially allows a certain level of opaqueness within project trees. This
opaqueness would make it easier for providers to "resell" infrastructure,
without having customers/providers see all the way up and down the project
tree, hence it was termed reseller. Keystone originally had some ideas of
how to implement this after the HMT implementation laid the ground work,
but it was never finished.

With it popping back up in conversations, I'm looking for folks who are
willing to represent the idea. Participating in this thread doesn't mean
you're on the hook for implementing it or anything like that.

Are you interested in reseller and willing to provide use-cases?
