Hi all!

As our state machine and discovery discussion proceeds, I'd like to ask
your opinion on whether we need an IntrospectionInterface
(DiscoveryInterface?). Current proposal [1] suggests adding a method for
initiating a discovery to the ManagementInterface. IMO it's not 100%
correct, because:
1. It's not management. We're not changing anything.
2. I'm aware that some folks want to use discoverd-based discovery [2]
even for DRAC and ILO (e.g. for vendor-specific additions that can't be
implemented OOB).

Any ideas?

Hi Dmitry,

I see the value in using the composability of our driver interfaces, so I vote for having a separate IntrospectionInterface. Otherwise we wouldn't allow users to use eg. the DRAC driver with an in-band but more powerful hw discovery.
