I downloaded the patch which implements the spec (https://review.openstack.org/#/c/214810):

I can make this REST API call to perform OVA import:


(it exercises the new OVA extract code path).

There's a parallel effort in the project to provide 'official' (Defcore)
APIs for image upload/conversion. What will be the advantage of having
two different REST API calls (a 'tasks' based one and a DefCore one)
for importing OVAs?

It seems to be possible to successfully make the above API call whether
you're admin or not and whether the server has the patch applied or
not. Is that expected?
