Re: Odd glance settings


Thx Jay,


Should that eventually be removed from the config?

Seems odd to have those type of settings in there.

Maybe rackspace can append to that file with there rackspace specific settings? Or something along that line.

I would just feel the same if yahoo put stuff in there, that said don't turn on unless you are yahoo.

Heyo. The ServiceNET feature is Rackspace specific because Swift

That setting does absolutely nothing unless you are Rackspace, of
course, but there wasn't any other way of passing the configuration
setting to the swift client from the glance swift driver without
putting it in the main config file.

Hope that helps. You can effectively ignore it.
