Project description

If you are viewing this README on GitHub, please be aware that placement development happens on OpenStack git and OpenStack gerrit.

OpenStack Placement

OpenStack Placement provides an HTTP service for managing, selecting, and claiming providers of classes of inventory representing available resources in a cloud.

In the unfortunate event that bugs are discovered, they should be reported to the appropriate bug tracker. If you obtained the software from a 3rd party operating system vendor, it is often wise to use their own bug tracker for reporting problems. In all other cases use the master OpenStack bug tracker, available at:

For the time being bugs in placement should be created in the Nova bug tracker with a tag of ``placement``.


For information on how to contribute to Placement, please see the contents of CONTRIBUTING.rst.

Any new code must follow the development guidelines detailed in the HACKING.rst file, and pass all tests.
