Subject RE: OVF support in deltacloud

Hi David,

Yes, it's not in the master branch because it's not complete and
properly tested.
Also, it only works for drivers that support CIMI systems, which does
not include EC2 yet.

With the code in my branch, I've hardcoded a system and implemented the
system import operation in the vsphere driver so it works for vsphere.

If you need it to run on ec2, you'll need to at least implement the
systems and system_import methods on the ec2 driver.

Am I missing something?

Best regards
