Hi, I would like to request a non-priority feature freeze exception for the "Use libvirt storage pools" blueprint .
The blueprint introduces a new image backed type that uses libvirt storage pools, and is designed to supercede several of the existing image backends for Nova. Using libvirt storage pools simplifies both the maintenance of existing code and the introduction of future storage pool types (since we can support any libvirt storage pool format that supports the createXMLFrom API call). It also paves the way for potentially using the storage pool API to assist with SSH-less migration of disks (not part of this blueprint). The blueprint also provides a way to migrate disks using legacy backends to the new backend on cold migrations/resizes, reboots (soft and hard), and live block migrations. The code  is up and working, and is split into (hopefully) manageable chunks. Best Regards, Solly Ross  http://specs.openstack.org/openstack/nova-specs/specs/kilo/approved/use-libvirt-storage-pools.html  https://review.openstack.org/#/c/152348/ and onward P.S. I would really like to get this in, since this would be the second time that this has been deferred, and took a good bit of manual rebasing to create the Kilo version from the Juno version. __________________________________________________________________________ OpenStack Development Mailing List (not for usage questions) Unsubscribe: openstack-dev-requ...@lists.openstack.org?subject:unsubscribe http://lists.openstack.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/openstack-dev
