  I come across two question about the image provision and distribute in openstack(nova),
1.Afaik, in current version, nova-compute use the curl to download image from glance (or other places). Are there any alternative methods to choose (such torrent)?
2.In fact, to boot a VM above hypervisor (e.g.,KVM, Xen), there is no need to transfer the whole image-file to local. Will the mechanism to transfer the image on demand on VM booting process makes sense?

Have a nice holiday!
