Subject Re: CloudStack cloudmonkey 4.1.0-snapshot

Rohit, can you check the wiki, it still mentions that it's built on Marvin (end of the page).

Also, will the sync for api discovery work with 4.0 ?

I need to finish the docs but I want to get that right and not tell 4.0 folks to sync if it's
not supported.
