[ops][glance][security] looking for metadefs users

Hello operators and other people interested in metadefs,

The Glance team will be giving the metadefs some love in the Xena
development cycle in order to address OSSN-0088 [0].

The people who designed and implemented metadefs are long gone, and in
determining how to fix OSSN-0088, we would like to understand how people
are actually using them in the wild so we don't restrict them so much as to
make them useless.

We are looking for an operator who uses metadefs to give us a walkthrough
on how you are using them at the Xena (virtual) PTG.  We are planning to
have this session on 23rd April around 1400 UTC. You can find more details
about the same in PTG planning etherpad [1]. We are also willing to meet
outside the PTG schedule in case the current scheduled time might be
blocking the people. I will also reply to this as a reminder mail once our
PTG schedule is final.

If you do not use the metadef API for some reason related to its inability
to solve a problem, lack of flexibility, or other reasons (but wish you
could), we would also like to hear about that. We need to know if the
feature is worth fixing and maintaining going forward.

And when we say "an operator", we don't mean just one ... ideally, we'd
like to have a few real-life use cases to consider.

If this is affecting you (as an operator) then you can reach us either by
mail or #openstack-glance IRC channel or glance weekly meeting [2] which
will be held every Thursday around 1400 UTC.
