Make API a bit more self-documenting
I'm hearing from API implementors that they have a lot of information that would be useful to app developers and they'd like to be able to deliver it through the API. Here's a proposal to: Add a . . .

why does VDC have a vm template uri?
You're exactly right; the worry is that the template catalog could be very large, and you don't want to give it to someone unless they ask for it. As to your other question: there's been a proposal th . . .

Doc questions Create VM
1) Pardon me being dense, but I don't understand the question. I'm not seeing the connection between the shape of the URL and navigability. Please try again? 2) Nope, the POST can only return 202/4 . . .

Proposal: Query Parameter for "Compact" Representations
I think this one is problematic in theory and in practice. This change reduces implementors' freedom to design their URI spaces; I could not use a naming scheme for VMs such as /vms?cluster=37&machine= . . .

Proposal: Additional Navigation Links
Can't see any harm in this. Haven't run across any app scenarios myself in which I need to climb the tree, but I guess it's not that exotic an idea.

Proposal: Annotating Supported Options on Commands
I think this one may well have negative ROI. Essentially, this amounts to a miniature schema language provided by the server to constrain the messages that the client sends the server. My experience . . .

Proposal: Flesh Out Lifecycle of Backups
Yes, there are clearly missing semantics and this would be a useful addition. Having a field ("type") that is both required and has a value space specified per implementation is a recipe for zero inte . . .

Proposal: Specifying Network Connections on VM Creation
This seems like a no-brainer, since it's hard to imagine wanting to create a VM that isn't hooked up to anything, and furthermore I suppose it would enable some optimizations on the server side. I'm n . . .
