Re: [libvirt] [PATCH 1/5] Public API to allow defining new domain using OVA file

[AB]: Thanks for reviewing this Daniel. I completly understand the concern of
not making it part of libvirt API, but as discussed in other thread (https://www.redhat.com/archives/libvir-list/2012-December/msg00385.html) I was unable to find API supported way to
upload OVA disk to the ESX server (which is an integral part of OVA install).

[AB]: If possible please suggest if there can be any other way to overcome
          this design flaw.
 
 
Further, there are two unrealted reviews that I posted fixing issues with
exisitng ESX driver, it would be useful if someone can review them.

Thanks!
