Add general-purpose query filters to REST API

Registered by Glen Campbell on 2011-04-13

This blueprint has been superseded. See the newer blueprint "Support filtering of results returned by /images and /images/detail" for updated plans.

The current Glance implementation is somewhat simplistic, especially for a multi-tenanted environment. This specification is for a proposal to enhance the Glance REST API by allowing query parameters on the /images and /images/detail resources.

In a multi-tenanted environment, especially one with thousands of users or customers, returning a collection of images can be extremely cumbersome. By providing filtering via query string parameters, this collection can be used to reduce the set of images to a more manageable size.
