Cool! Thank Brian.
Sounds like something we can use, just one small question in my mind. In
order to use `web-download` in image resource, we need to create an empty
image than use import to upload that imge. I have try that scenrio by
myself now (I'm not really diving into detail yet) by:
1. create an empty image(like `openstack image create --container-format
bare --disk-format qcow2 img_name`)
2. and than import image  (like `glance image-import --import-method
web-download --uri
https://download.cirros-cloud.net/0.3.5/cirros-0.3.5-x86_64-disk.img `)
But that image stuck in queued after first step.
dose this scenario supported by glance? Or where did I do wrong?
