I haven't been able to finish the docs by the deadline I set myself (today) - the process
is much more time consuming than I expected. I am invoking every API call with curl so that
i can accurately capture request/response; this is also exposing issues with the API (e.g.
the response codes for blob metadata that I sent a patch for).

the existing deltacloud REST API (that we submitted to DMTF CMWG) to .mdown format. You need
to run 'webby' in /path/to/deltacloud/site and then the REST API can be seen at /path/to/deltacloud/site/output/api2.html.
The most complete section and which should be used for making comments is '4.3 Blob Storage'.
It contains 'example requests' and 'server response' for every available API call. 

I know this isn't particular to this patchset, but I figure this is a good time
to point this out.

For the Aeolus project, we've been in touch with the author of webby, and he
has more-or-less abandoned the project.  At the time he wrote it a couple of
years ago, there wasn't a great solution, and webby worked for him.  However,
in the intervening time a couple of other frameworks have come about, and webby
has not been kept up-to-date.  The webby author now recommends nanoc, which is
still in active maintenance and seems to have more of a community than webby.

Just FYI.
