Few comments:

First, on services, the goal is to be able to bootstap the instance. I don't like httpd being used as an example as that could be interpreted as software config and not infra startup config.  Nicer example are starting puppet, Matahari, mounting an NFS share etc.


"Audrey provided and user provided config tooling

Currently some config tooling is provide along with the Audrey Start code. In the future more could be added. If a conflict arises between user provided config tooling and Audrey provided for a particular service the user provided tooling will be used and the Audrey provided tooling will be ignored.

If the user provides a Top-Level configuration tooling executable all other tooling will be ignored."

This section does not seem correct. only case I can think of here is if the image came from an OVA source and has the OVA activation daemon. Then Audry should be able to run the OVA activation daemon, and then it's boot config. We should also be able to tell it to skip calling OVA activation daemon if required.

Greg Blomquist and I have put together an Audrey design document for the 0.4.0 effort.

Although we would appreciate input from anyone I'm requesting review feedback from the following people:
John Dunning
Hugh Brock
Chris Lalancette
Mark McLoughlin
Carl Trieloff
Brian Kearney

I am asking that all feedback be provided by COB one week from today, August 3, 2011. We are already moving forward with some development according to the presented design so direction changing feedback would be greatly appreciated as early as possible. If anyone needs more time please let us know.

I tried to provide XML examples that align with the format outlined in past discussion. If I missed that please let me know.

Thank you,
