Whiteboard

This bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/glance/+bug/1190559 seems to fold into this process. When an image is imported such things as the image size can be extracted.

Can the upload policies be updated/refactored as part of this blueprint?

For instance, it would be nice to have a way to allow users to create snapshots (upload an image through nova by creating a snapshot) but not upload an image directly to glance.

(nikhil) comment: This makes sense. However, we should understand the use cases to figure out the new policies. Also from certain restrictions applied at Rackspace, we see some of the challenges for applying standard property protections to this process. Let's discuss these 2 things offline and document on etherpad for further reference.
