I have got some ideas for realizing 'Add rename APIs for all objects'.
See http://code.google.com/p/gsocxy/wiki/GeneralDesignForRenameAPIs
in details. So first, i will finish *Rename storage volume* for offline storage
driver(inactive object). I consider that it would be like a command like this
'virsh vol-rename xxx' so i could refer to 'virsh vol-clone xxx'. I can find
patches for 'vol-clone' here.
http://libvirt.org/git/?p=libvirt.git;a=commitdiff;h=6852c88fc71a02b107d3beb90f13dce90b4784b2
I will analyze vol-clone's thoughts and design for 'Rename storage volume'
and then program for my thoughts. At last, give some tests and submit
my patches for 'Rename storage volume' to upstream. Are my thoughts
all right? Could anyone please give me some suggestions? Thanks
in advance ;-)
