provide these services to other applications.

The openstack-glance packages have been upgraded to upstream version

issue. Upstream acknowledges Gabe Westmaas as the original reporter of

packages, which fix these bugs and add these enhancements. After installing
the updated packages, the Glance services (openstack-glance-api and
