Excerpts from Dmitry Tantsur's message of 2017-10-30 17:51:49 +0100:
> Hi all,
> So far driver requirements  have been managed outside of global-requirements.
> This was mostly necessary because some dependencies were not on PyPI. This is no
> longer the case, and I'd like to consider managing them just like any other
> dependencies. Pros:
> 1. making these dependencies (and their versions) more visible for packagers
> 2. following the same policies for regular and driver dependencies
> 3. ensuring co-installability of these dependencies with each other and with the
> remaining openstack
> 4. potentially using upper-constraints in 3rd party CI to test what packagers
> will probably package
> 5. we'll be able to finally create a tox job running unit tests with all these
> dependencies installed (FYI these often breaks in RDO CI)
> 1. more work for both the requirements team and the vendor teams
> 2. inability to use ironic release notes to explain driver requirements changes
> 3. any objections from the requirements team?
> If we make this change, we'll drop driver-requirements.txt, and will use
> setuptools extras to list then in setup.cfg (this way is supported by g-r)
> similar to what we do in ironicclient .
> We either will have one list:
> drivers =
> or (and I like this more) we'll have a list per hardware type:
> redfish =
> idrac =
> ilo =
The second option is what I would expect.
