Stephen Watson has been working on an magnum feature to add magnum commands to the openstack client by implementing a plugin:


In review of this work, a question has resurfaced, as to what the client command name should be for magnum related commands. Naturally, we’d like to have the name “cluster” but that word is already in use by Senlin. Stephen opened a discussion with Dean Troyer about this, and found that “infra” might be a suitable name and began using that, and multiple team members are not satisfied with it. The name “magnum” was excluded from consideration because OSC aims to be project name agnostic. We know that no matter what word we pick, it’s not going to be ideal. I’ve added an agenda on our upcoming team meeting to judge community consensus about which alternative we should select:


Current choices on the table are:

  * c_cluster (possible abbreviation alias for container_infra_cluster)
  * coe_cluster
  * mcluster
  * infra

For example, our selected name would appear in “openstack …” commands. Such as:

$ openstack c_cluster create …

If you have input to share, I encourage you to reply to this thread, or come to the team meeting so we can consider your input before the team makes a selection.
