RFE: YAML Catalog Backend

Bug #1815966 reported by Lance Bragstad on 2019-02-14

Bug Description

Keystone offers different pluggable backends for service catalogs. One uses ``sql`` and the other is known as ``templated``. The ``templated`` backend reads catalog entries from files written to disk and exposed to keystone via configuration files. This method of catalog management is useful for deployments where catalog data is relatively static.

The problem with this backend is that is it based on ini-style configuration and everything is defined in a flat structure. Using YAML to define the service catalog would make the file-based catalog easier to read and maintain.
