Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Important: XenServer labels reverted for backward compatibility
Date Mon, 02 Feb 2015 13:52:21 GMT
Hi Tim,

You may be right on this one, we just want to make sure. Feel free to
revert the fix is there is a better way around. I personally would like
to avoid string changes because as Geoff mentions it changes the
interface for 3rd party consumers such as CLI scripts, custom UI and
possibly others.
