For the past few weeks I have been working on creating a schema that fully
describes the vdsm API.  I am mostly finished with that effort and I wanted to
share the results with the team.  Attached are two files: the raw schema and an
html document with cross-linked type information.

This should already be useful in its current form, but I have bigger plans.  I
would first like to get help to correct errors in the schema.  Then, I will
start the process of writing a code generator that will create C/gObject code
that we can compile into a libvdsm with language bindings for python, java, etc.

Please take a look at the attached files and let me know what you think?

P.S.  I tried to attach these to the oVirt Wiki, but they are not permitted file

Hi Adam,

that's quite a big scheme to review.
have you thought about ways to solicit inputs for it?
(maybe schedule per topic reviews of the new scheme/api for VM
operations (virt), network (host level, vm level), storage, sla
policy, etc.)?

For the first pass, we are trying to replicate the current API as much as
possible.  For subsequent refactoring, I'd expect the discussions to occur in
the community around the patches that are implementing the proposed changes.

I think it would be worth highlighting these patches on mailing
list, or even do a scheduled discussion/brainstorm around various
parts for where it should go.

I have been trying to get some attention on it for some time.  I agree it's a
good idea.  I'll be presenting it at the Barcelona workshop as well.  Any other
ideas on how to have a constructive and inclusive mailing list discussion would
be welcomed :)  In the past, it was hard to keep the thread focused and
driving toward consensus.

I'd try to focus on one area at time, do an email thread as a prep for a meeting to drive more consolidated discussions, then see where you reach.
