Bug Description

Glance comes with a set of pre-created set of metadata definitions that Horizon can use to improve the user experience around Nova, Glance, Cinder, and other services.

The definitions are kept in /etc/metadefs/ (https://github.com/openstack/glance/tree/master/etc/metadefs). They don't appear to be shipped with Glance in wheels by default, which is a separate bug.

Further, once these definitions are shipped, they should be loaded after Glance is installed with `glance-manage db_load_metadefs`.

For what it's worth we'll want to use

     glance-manage db_load_metadefs /usr/local/etc/metadefs {overwrite,merge,prefer_new,}

The latter, I believe, depends on how you want metadefs to be loaded into the database when existing metadefs exist. If users are adding their own and on upgrade we load the new metadefs from upstream, then we may cause problems for users who've created their own.

Perhaps we should only provide a way to load metadefs, not do it by default?
