Hmmm. Good points. One thing I *really* dislike about the Ubuntu
packages for example is that they automatically start up the various services when you
install a package. This can get sort of tricky when you try to deal with that in
combination with configuration management. As for defaults however... it seems reasonable
to default to something more robust than the key/value store backend.
Yes, only thing verboten in Fedora packaging is starting daemons in %post,
but giving reasonable defaults is a GoodThing.
If some user population doesn't like our defaults, they can still change it.
I'd say SQLite is a good middle ground as a default.
No, since we decided sqlite is not good for Nova we should make
other components of Openstack consistent and use mysql by default.
