Hello all,

I've published the third draft of the new Images API proposal here:


Major changes from the 2nd draft include:

* Addition of XML as well as JSON content type support
* Addition of Zones resource
* Use of JSON Schema and XSD for resource description documents
* Addition of image classifications -- internal or external, depending
on whether the master server containing image properties is controlled
by the server publishing an image
* Use of a "type" and "format" of the image, as per the mailing list
discussion about container_format and disk_format
* Removal of the OVF/OVA format type -- see note on migration of OVA
files from 1.x servers to 2.0 servers in 3rd draft
* Addition of example API call flows at the end of the draft document

We welcome all feedback.
