Re: Do these commands belong in the API or nova-manage?
Only place for it to go now is the ec2 admin extension api (nova/api/ec2/admin.py).
Until we get the OpenStack API out in the open, we can't add anything to it.
The goal is to move the admin functions to the OpenStack API when that becomes an option, but I'm guessing that won't be until diablo.
