I'll try to convince Dagmar to do it :-)

> The Deltacloud directories contain a number of text files with documentation, examples,
download and license-related information. Some of the info  in these files is out of date,
pointing to the 'incubator' site, dates from 2010, 2011 and svn repos. A list of some files
found that need review is included below. There may be additional files - so recommendation
is to grep and check those similar files.

> ==============
> Hooray, you have successfully checked out Deltacloud Core.
> Deltacloud protects yourapps from cloud API changes and incompatibilities,
> so you can concentrate on managing cloud instances the way you want.

> Prerequisites
> -------------
> Deltacloud Core depends on a number of other Ruby libraries. The easiest
> way to install them is to either install the deltacloud-core package from
> your distribution is repository, e.g. `yum install deltacloud-core` on
> Fedora, or install the gem with `gem install deltacloud-core`.
> If you do not want to do that, have a look at the dependencies in the gem
> spec for deltacloud-core and install them manually from git repository:
>     $ mkdir deltacloud
>     $ cd deltacloud
>     $ git svn init -s
>     $ git svn fetch --log-window-size 10000
>     $ git clone git:// core
> Running
> -------
> To get started, run `./bin/deltacloudd -i mock`; this will run Deltacloud
> Core with the mock driver, a driver that does not talk to a cloud, but
> simulates being one. It will store data about its instances etc. in
> `/var/tmp/deltacloud-mock-$USER`; that directory will automatically populated
> with sample data if it does not exist. Subsequent runs will continue using
> the data found there. If you need to start over from scratch, just delete
> that directory and restart deltacloudd.
> Once you have the server running, point your browser at
> [localhost:3001/api](http://localhost:3001/api) to get a HTML version of Deltacloud Core.
> If you want to look at the XML that REST clients will see, simply add
> `?format=xml` to URLs. Deltacloud Core does content negotiation; REST clients should
> set _format_ to URLs, they should simply set the _Accept_ header appropriately.
> Some operations require authentication. For the mock driver, the username
> and password are *mockuser* and *mockpassword*. A current list of drivers
> and what kind of credentials they need can be found at
> Deltacloud Incubator site (
> Happy hacking - and do not forget to send patches to the mailing list (see
> [deltacloud-devel]( or
> [incubator-deltacloud-dev](
> You could send patches using `git format-patch master` and then `git send-email
> --thread`. Example _git/.config_ file:
>     [sendemail]
>         to =
>         signedoffbycc=no
>         chainreplyto=no
>         smtpserver=YOUR_SMTP_SERVER_HERE
>         thread=yes
>         from=YOUR_EMAIL_HERE
