This week I spent some time analyzing the parameters that must be passed to all of the different VDSM API calls. For those involving complex types (dictionaries with required keys, magic strings, etc) I have attempted to document the required format and meaning of the required data. The document is in the ovirt wiki: http://ovirt.org/wiki/Vdsm_datatypes . Please take a look and correct any inaccuracies. Next, I would like to document complex return values.
One of the reasons I have done this work is in an attempt to drive some improvements into the API redesign I am working on. I think the structure of the parameters and return values should be codified somehow. I noticed in storage_connection.py that there is some validation being performed on the connection information. Do people agree that this could be way forward for field validation? Are there better methods?
