Yes! Vdsm already has a 'private' API that only RHEV-m used to consume. In the ovirt world, vdsm needs to expose a real public API (by whatever means we choose) so that external entities (ISVs) can leverage vdsm directly if they so choose. This API must be the same one that ovirt-engine uses, otherwise we are maintaining two incompatible APIs. -- Adam Litke <a...@us.ibm.com> IBM Linux Technology Center _______________________________________________ vdsm-devel mailing list email@example.com https://fedorahosted.org/mailman/listinfo/vdsm-devel
