[openstack-dev] [heat] Questions on template-validate

I am going to bring this up in the team meeting tomorrow, but I figured 
I'd send it out here as well. Rather than retype the issue, please look at:


My question is what the desired behavior of template-validate should be, 
at least from a historical standpoint of what we've honored in the past. 
Before I propose/implement a fix, I want to make sure I'm not violating 
any unwritten expectations on how it should work.

On a related note -- and this is going to sound really stupid that I 
don't know this answer -- but are there any docs on actually using Heat? 
I was looking for docs that may explain what the expectation of 
template-validate was but I couldn't really find any.

The wiki links to a number of developer-centric docs (HOT guide, 
developer process, etc.). I found the (what I believe to be current) 
REST API docs [1] but the only real description is "Validates a template."

Thanks  :D
