Adding a Glance image via API without POSTing the image data?


Hello all,

The Horizon team is looking at adding a first-pass implementation of image upload before the Essex release, and we'd really like to bypass the problems associated with, say, passing a 700MB Ubuntu image through the user's browser to a web server and then across to Glance...
