Ah yes.  I remember it well.

It seems to mean "the IP address nova expects to have as an OpenStack
compute node" (I see HOWTOs advising not to let the machine get a
dynamic DHCP address).  All the examples use IPv4 addresses in private
ranges... oh, and apparently there's a default setting of
use_ipv6=False... so maybe we need to say something like:
   This value will be the static address for this compute node, and
   must use IPv4 unless use_ipv6 is manually set to "True".

Maybe that could be shortened a little, but it'll do.

JBR	with qualifications in linguistics, experience as a Debian
