Sofia already resolved it in commmit 563b06582297f471b20b1006b240e103bca007b0.
I just renamed 'Region' to 'region' to much with the docs.

And the return value for "region" in 563b06582297f471b20b1006b240e103bca007b0 is "defaultRegion". Can we make it just "default"? (reason: it is shorter and it is more natural to use "default"). Otherwise, if we follow the OpeStack example in the URL I provided, they say "RegionOne".

#3 Updated by Vangelis Koukis over 7 years ago

The actual name of the region is deployment-specific, and is left completely up to the administrators to decide.

Changing it to "default" would perhaps imply there is a special "default" value, so I'd vote against it.

"RegionOne" is just a name chosen by the OpenStack docs, it doesn't make much sense to replicate it in our code.

#4 Updated by Christos KK Loverdos over 7 years ago

So, what's the proposal?

If it's not a known value, then it must be configuration, right?
