Subject Re: xenserver 6.5
Date Wed, 14 Jan 2015 08:16:39 GMT
Adrian, I think your questions/considerations are right and I have
been wondering about the same things.
On one side it should be "allowed unless" instead of "only allowed
if". On the other hand therre are sure to be some features extra or
some that might have a slightly different semantics that might hinder
or impair cloudstack.
Not sure what the right answer is. Hope that someone with a view on
the architectural decisions behind it can shed some light.
