Hi Mark,
Great observations, at the Trove midcycle meetup we identified this as an
area to be documented. I heard at least 2 people want to work on it so I
hope they're drafting furiously and soon! I think it should eventually go
into the Virtual Machine Image Guide, but may just need to be part of their
install guide right away. Thanks for asking, it helps shape the docs.
