Remaining work on shared resources for Pike for OpenStack Compute (nova)
Few things need to be completed for the shared resources work in Pike: 1) Rename "can_host" to "shared" on placement DB's resource_providers table (edit mriedem): Per discussion at the Pike PTG, this needs to change since we're going to use traits now: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/376198/ 2) Add InventoryList...
