Subject Re: Modern template hosting
Date Fri, 03 Mar 2017 19:08:15 GMT
yes, system vm templates only.  solve for legacy setups when
download.cloud.com goes away.  optionally, give the community more control
over available mirrors without impacting the documentation and setup
process.

a valid option i think we should still be considering is just trying to get
the ASF to point 'downloads.cloudstack.org' at wido's repository.  at least
we then have basic 'control' over the domain which we are using in the
documentation.
