Hi Amit,

Kolla-ansible does not have explicit support for LXC-based nova instances.
I'm not aware of anyone with plans to add support for this, although if you
would like to do this work we would be happy to take it upstream.

I have not used LXC as a nova virt driver before. Do you have a feel for
what is required to make this work? Does nova use libvirt to manage the LXC
containers? If so we could probably make use of the existing libvirt image.
