Common image properties

When launching an instance from code, the code needs to be able to pick a suitable image. Today, there is no easy way to do that, particularly when targeting multiple OpenStack clouds. Some clouds expect us to parse the name, some use metadata (different metadata for each cloud). I am proposing that the public clouds agree a set of common image properties. What they are doesn't really matter, but here's something I would consider sane: openstack.org:os_distro=debian.org openstack.org:os_major=6.0 openstack.org:os_minor=4 openstack.org:updated_through=20120401 I am not proposing that we do this through code. It should be possible for a public cloud to implement this without any code changes. (Session lead is justinsb)
