[nova-lxd] retiring nova-lxd

Hi All

I’m slightly sad to announce that we’re retiring the LXD driver for Nova
aka “nova-lxd”.

Developing a driver for Nova for container based machines has been a fun
and technically challenging ride over the last four years but we’ve never
really seen any level of serious production deployment; as a result we’ve
decided that it’s time to call it a day for nova-lxd.

I’d like to thank all of the key contributors for their efforts over the
years - specifically Chuck Short, Paul Hummer, Chris MacNaughton, Sahid
Orentino and Alex Kavanaugh who have led or contributed to the development
of the driver over its lifetime.

I’ll be raising a review to leave a note for future followers as to the
fate of nova-lxd.  If anyone else would like to continue development of the
driver they are more than welcome to revert my commit and become a part of
the development team!

We’ll continue to support our current set of stable branches for another
~12 months.

Note that development of LXD and the pylxd Python module continues; its
just the integration of OpenStack with LXD that we’re ceasing development
