Hey everybody,

I noticed today while preparing patches to projects that are using 
openstacksdk that masakari is not listed in service-types-authority. [0]

I pushed up a patch to fix that [1] as well as to add api-ref, docs and 
releasenotes jobs to the masakari repo so that each of those will be 
published appropriately.

As part of doing this, it came up that 'ha' is a pretty broad 
service-type and that perhaps it should be 'compute-ha' or 'instance-ha'.

The service-type is a unique key for identifying a service in the 
catalog, so the same service-type cannot be shared amongst openstack 
services. It is also used for api-ref publication (to
https://developer.openstack.org/api-ref/{service-type} ) - and in 
openstacksdk as the name used for the service attribute on the 
Connection object. (So the service-type 'ha' would result in having 
conn.ha on an openstack.connection.Connection)

We do support specifying historical aliases. Since masakari has been 
using ha up until now, we'll need to list is in the aliases at the very 

Do we want to change it? What should we change it to?
