Subject Re: Swift 2.x as Secondary Storage - auth v2 ?
Date Mon, 25 May 2015 14:32:18 GMT
When I last reviewed the code, the actual swift-xen implementation did not
support any auth system other than v1.  I would have to review it again to
know for sure, but that is my memory.

The swift api library used by ACS is very outdated and really needs to be
addressed.  The library used is deprecated and there are many places in the
code where there is no error handling, like referencing the first element
of an array without validating that there are any elements in the array.

It is in my backlog (or rather icebox) to review the swift implementation
more thoroughly investigate some of the issues we are experiencing...
