Direct Image File Copy

Registered by John Bresnahan on 2013-01-15

Glance v2 allows an administrator to enable direct_URL meta-data to be delivered to the glance client. Under the right circumstances this information can be used to more efficiently get the image. Nova-compute could benefit from this by invoking a copy when it knows it has access to the same file system as glance. A configuration option would enable this behavior.
