Bug Description

This patch [1] removed the nova.conf.sample because it's not gated but now we are left without the sample config file in the tarball.
We could generate the nova.conf.sample in setup.py (based on this comment [2]) and include it in the tarball for rc2.

FYI: Part of the problem is the sample config file changes based on the versions of dependencies used.

So this was changed late in icehouse cycle for a reason, and I'd like to make sure we don't change back and forth several times and have a final direction on this.

In the other bug, Russell criticized the idea of generating it in setup.py, saying:
"That's problematic because an accurate config depends on what versions of other libraries you have installed on the system, like oslo.config, oslo.messaging, keystoneclient ..."

I'd like to see that comment addressed...

Why is this marked incomplete? Has it been decided not to add this file?

This is a policy decision. We should bring it back up on the mailing list if we think the policy should change.
