Hey ksankar,

We already have a blueprint to cover the Openstack API efforts for teh
Bexar release at:


See previous threads in that list: The Openstack API (1.0) support
already exists in the code, it is currently the Rackspace Cloud API.
Version 1.1 of that API (in Cactus) should have an Openstack namespace
and extensibility.

As part of the above spec, Sandy Walsh has a new python-cloudservers
library (and accompanying cloudservers CLI tool) that, with adequate
rebranding, should just be what you're looking for.
