[openstack-dev] [Nova][VMware] Deploy from vCenter template

IIRC someone who shows up at
https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Meetings/VMwareAPI#Meetings is planning on
working on that again for Icehouse-3 but there's some new debate on the
best way to implement the desired effect. The goal of that change would be
to avoid streaming the disk image out of vCenter for the purpose of then
streaming the same image back into the same vCenter. That's really

So there's a Nova level change that could happen (that's the patch you saw)
and there's a Glance level change that could happen, and there's a
combination of both approaches that could happen.

If you want to discuss it informally with the group that's looking into the
problem I could probably make sure you end up talking to the right people
on #openstack-vmware or if you pop into the weekly team meeting on IRC you
could mention it during open discussion time.
