Subject RE: [DISCUSS] Opennebula marketplace integration
Date Thu, 20 Dec 2012 01:50:18 GMT
John ,

What I meant was that I'll ask Jie to look more exclusively into this issue and have Brian
as well express his opinion on the same on the mailing list itself so that we can collaborate
on the work for marketplace integration with Sebastien moving forward. As you have seen ,
Jie has already given a detailed explanation of what the idea is behind creating  a marketplace
and what sort of issues we can run into while integrating it.

Is there some reason this can't be discussed on the mailing list?

thereafter we can have a plugin code available on github , as very rightly mentioned by you
, unless we can think off some other alternative solution.

the code of such marketplace should not be in the cloudstack code. That means that you could
put your marketplace code on github but commit the "hooks" to it in cloudstack. In a very
similar fashion that we have several storage backends.

This would in turn display the images that are in the marketplace within the template UI.
