endorsing osc again once it has stabilized the Images API facing code and
maintained feature parity for a few cycles. Just stopping developing
python-glanceclient  will only result in no up-to-date stable client for
Images API developed under OpenStack Governance. I really don't think
forcing to fork python-glanceclient to keep development going outside of
OpenStack Governance will be the better solution here.
