Bug Description

Glance-api container starts with default log file /var/log/glance/api.log which has default permissions root:root so it fails.

It shouldn't use logs at all but stdout.

OpenStack services logs on stdout as well as into log file (log_file = /var/log/glance/api.log in glance-api.conf). However we want to log all services into /var/log too. It will use host volume.

Should we leave it in dockerfile or extend salt formula glance?

I would prefer forcing services to use stdout and disable useless file-based logging.

Then it's possible to collect logs from containers for example this way:

Anyway there's no need to have volume on /var/log and file-based logs when it's correctly dockerized.
