Fixed In Version: openstack-swift-1.13.1-2.el7ost Doc Type: Enhancement
Doc Text:
The python-swiftclient package is no longer used by Object Storage (swift), and hence does not need to be installed on storage nodes. It is desirable for python-swiftclient to depend on other packages, but not desirable to add a number of transient dependencies to server nodes. Now, the python-swiftclient: - Can use HTTP client libraries such as Requests - May be included into Python 3 applications freely - Imports python-keystoneclient utilities

Description RHOS Integration 2014-01-27 05:05:01 UTC
Cloned from launchpad blueprint


1) direct_client has very small usage
2) /bin scripts use it a lot
3) tests use it a lot

tests can be solved by moving python-swiftclient to test-requires.txt
that leaves bin scripts and direct_client
direct_client is used by bin scripts and container sync and account reaper
