Does cinder work as a glance backend in icehouse?

Hi Everyone,

I've been setting up an OpenStack system on Ubuntu 14.04 and I'm running into some problems with Glance and Cinder. Cinder works fine on it's own, and Glance works when using the file storage backend, but not with the cinder backend. I get errors in my glance-api log like:

Failed to configure store correctly: Store cinder could not be configured correctly. Reason: Cinder storage requires a context. Disabling add method.

Failed to configure store correctly: Store cinder could not be configured correctly. Reason: Cinder storage requires a service catalog. Disabling add method.

I read some older posts in google searches that Cinder wasn't working as a backend in the previous version. Has this been fixed in Icehouse, or is it still unsupported?

Here is my glance-api.conf file (or at least the important parts):

[DEFAULT]
default_store = cinder
known_stores = glance.store.cinder.Store
cinder_catalog_info = volume:cinder:publicURL

And the service is registered properly:

# keystone service-list

Yes, I was looking through that and it was one of the places that said that cinder wasn't working as a backstore for glance (basically, you can't upload/download images into cinder through glance, so I don't know how you would use it...) I was wondering if anything had changed in the 8 months since that comment, or if it was still broken.
