Add OpenStack Swift as a git submodule
This allows developers to easily insert the python debugger to the OpenStack Swift code which in turn calls gluster-swift. Using 'git submodule' allows developers to not only create a clone of the OpenStack Swift repo locally, but also automatically set the repo to the appropriate tested version. This change also allows us to always match the version of OpenStack Swift that gluster-swift has been tested against. For this change, the submodule of OpenStack Swift has been set to version 1.9.1 which, according to the RDO rpms, it is commit id 95bcd7180c546f91414c2493d343fe1a4ae3ce44. Here is how developers can setup their repo after this change: $ git submodule init $ git submodule update Now that the correct version of the OpenStack Swift code has been cloned to the modules directory, it can be used for debugging during development. First we need to setup a link called 'swift' to point to the python code from the root of the gluster-swift repo as follows: $ ln -s swift modules/swift/swift Here is simple example of how to debug an object PUT command. First, we need to add the following line: `import pdb ; pdb.set_trace` to swift/proxy/controllers/ at line 818. To execute the debug line added above, we can use the following unit test: $ nosetests -v -s -exe test/unit/proxy/ Change-Id: I01dd58954e5ef139208a1132140c6c83ada82c18 Signed-off-by: Luis Pabon <> Reviewed-on: Reviewed-by: Chetan Risbud <> Tested-by: Chetan Risbud <> Reviewed-by: Peter Portante <>
