Hi all,

After i read all comments from Danpb, Mprivozn, Osier, i find i should
rephrase my project idea for Libvirt storage during GSOC 2013(Thanks
for Stefan Hajnoczi. He let me know this key point). I find Osier and
Mprivozn agree with the project named 'The capability support for
storage' and Danpb just feel it is a bit difficulty for students to do, which
i have given my feedback to explain. So i rephrase my project idea for
Libvirt storage during GSOC 2013 like following.

Project name: The capability support for storage driver.

Summary: The capability support for storage driver (like virsh
capabilities for the hypervisor drivers, e.g. what pool types it
supports, what volume types each pool type supports, even
may what operations/APIs the pool type support, ...etc).

Sill level: Advanced.

Osier said to me this is a deserved bug to fix so i think he
may wanna be the mentor for this one, right?

Any Comments? Thanks in advance ;-)

Harry Wei
