And add "interleave" for "login" and "passwd" attributes of "chap"
type auth.
s/And add/Added

Changed "chap" type "login" and "passwd" attributes to be be interleaved.

The only question/comment below is the 'intention' of removing the
"optional" attribute from 'passwd' and 'sourceinfoauthsecret'.

Both of these changed to have to be non-optional... Reading the
"formatdomain.html" page is "confusing" at best since 'passwd' isn't

"passwd" is actually mandatory, see virStoragePoolDefParseAuthChap

I misunderstood you a bit, "passwd" is never supported by domain, it's
the right thing, plain password is always not good for security.

the domain XML intentionally does not expose the password, only the reference to the object that does manage the password

same for "sourceinfoauthsecret", see virStoragePoolDefParseAuthCephx

domain doesn't do the checking for requirement of either "uuid" or "usage",
but it's the thing it should do. I don't see any reason why it doesn't require
it for a "ceph" type auth.

It would seem to me that the formatdomain page should also be updated
based on what I see here as part of this change.

You should read formatstorage.html.in, unfortunately, it's a history problem, we lack of documents for most of the storage stuffs, we should do it later, but it will waste lots of time to figure out the right documents, which I don't
want to touch at this stage..
