Questions for freeaSPICE
by Yixin Zhang
Dear Sir or Madam,
Sorry can I have your name? freeaSPICE is a very nice APP, it could be used to connect the virtual machine directly.
There are some problems confused me, can I ask for you suggestions?
I'm Yixin Zhang,and now doing an internship for Outreachy Project,and now I'm in the project movirt. I'm thinking of calling freeaSPICE in movirt to connect VM, the calling code as followed:
Intent intent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW)
And the data form as followed：spice://192.168.1.100:5900?SpicePassword=...&TlsPort=5901&CaCertPath=...&CertSubject=....
However while I checked for you source code：https://github.com/iiordanov/remote-desktop-clients , I found it can not pass the parameters TlsPort, CaCertPath, CertSubject using this method, is there any other ways to pass the parameters, if there is, could u give me some suggestions? Thank you so much.
In order to pass these three parameter TlsPort, CaCertPath, CertSubjectin,I fork your remote-desktop-clients code （fork address:https://github.com/zyx0225/remote-desktop-clients/tree/aSPICE),
Also, as you compile instruction I compiled aSPICE(But I have no idea how to compile libspice.so and libgstreamer_android.so, so I copy lib document of freeaSPICE-3.7.7-final.apk),I add the parser code for these three parameters TlsPort, CaCertPath, CertSubject (The main logical code: ：https://github.com/zyx0225/remote-desktop-clients/commit/5233d9bb5f6434bba97237fd8ea014cf19b14c88), and invoke aSPICE in movirt to connect VM successfully. However, it just want to prove some my own guess and I have no idea whether there are some problem to code in such way.
We really really hope that we could invoke freeaSPICE in movirt to realize such functions, and I like freeaSPICE this APP so much, with great appreciate that you developed such a great APP. If we could realize our ideas mentioned above using your freeaSPICE, it would be such an exciting thing.
Could you add parser for these three parameters TlsPort, CaCertPath, CertSubject in next version of freeaSPICE, or other ways that we could invoke freeaSPICE in movirt to connect VM?
Thank you so much for your time, looking forward to your reply

Feature page for Doctor Rest Integration
by Martin Betak
During the implementation of the moVirt project , a client frontend communicating
with the oVirt engine purely via REST-API, many shortcomings of this approach surfaced.
* Need for periodic polling: absence of any push notifications
(especially bad for monitoring clients whose main purpose is to
display current dashboard-like overview of the system.)
* Even when polling need to issue excessive amounts of HTTP requests
(list of entities and then have to individually query each entity's sub-resources).
* Very limited and ad-hoc support for data-aggregation
(just VMs' statistics/disks/nics and Hosts' statistics)
* No support for finer grained selection of data client is actually interested in
- always have to fetch full VM entitties only when we are actually interested
in only a handful of fields.
To address the above shortcomings, and improve user experience for our mobile users and
of our future frontend, the Doctor REST project  was created to solve the above concerns
in a generic way that is agnostic of any specific data-format or backend architecture so
it can be used by anyone who wishes to add Doctor's capabilities to their project.
The feature page  should track progress of this integration effort and status
of necessary engine patches.
To find more information about the overall design of Doctor REST, please see
the linked wiki page , README of the github repo  or the attached presentation
that was given to the UX team this summer.
I still need to update the project's README to new overhauled authentication
architecture (designed to work with oVirt SSO), but your questions,
suggestions and other remarks are very welcome.
Thank you and best regards,
