Subscribing field-medium as this is required for working around bugs
like #1821594.  While there's a workaround, the workaround is not
feasible in environments that block pythonhosted.org/pip repos through
their firewall.

  Include osc-placement plugin in openstack client package and snap

Status in python-openstackclient package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  During troubleshooting of migration errors due to differences in
  placement API database allocations from the actual nova allocation
  utilization resulting from bugs like lp#1821594, we need to be able to
  run commands such as

  "openstack resource provider allocation delete $UUID"

  The openstack resource provider command sets are provided by the osc-
  placement plugin.

  Current workaround is to create a venv with the openstackclient and
  osc-placement plugin.

  virtualenv -p python3 osc
  source osc/bin/activate
  pip3 install osc-placement openstackclient
  ./osc/bin/openstack resource provider.....

  It would be helpful for these commands to be included in the UCA and
  snap for Openstack Queens and newer.
