Convert glance image meta properties into NovaObject (partial)

Registered by Dennis Kliban on 2014-02-17

In an effort to standardize which image properties are available to the nova drivers, a NovaObject needs to be created. This object will take a dictionary of values provided by Glance and verify that the keys are one of the allowed ones listed here: https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/VirtDriverImageProperties

The new VirtProperties object will be consumed by the nova drivers. It will not be backed by a database.

Re-approved for liberty at nova meeting. --johnthetubaguy 30th April 2015

Is this now complete? or is there still code to upload for this? --johnthetubaguy 22nd June 2015

Kicking this out of liberty now, doesn't appear to being worked on. --johnthetubaguy 28th August 2015
PS I know we have work done on this, but none of it appears to be tracked in here, so dropping this now pointless paperwork.

OK so I found them:
https://review.openstack.org/#/q/topic:virtimageprops-19,n,z

So lets try get these into liberty, since they are really just waiting on the gate:
