My comments about the RESTAPI:

1. You can't use the "snapshot" and "snapshots" XML elements, as those
are already in use for disk snapshots, and we don't have name space
support in the RESTAPI. You will have to use something different, for
example "gluster_volume_snapshots" and "gluster_volume_snapshot".

2. When adding a volume snapshot the name of the volume shouldn't be a
parameter, as that is implicit. Only the name and description of the
snapshot should be provided.

3. The operation to delete a snapshot should be performed on the
snapshot resource, not on the collection:


Ideally this operation shouldn't receive any parameters (thus no body).
If it does require parameters then they should be contained inside an
"action" element.

4. The operation to update the snapshot configuration should be the PUT
operation of the volume, not a new "snapshotconfig" sub-resource, as
these kind of sub-resources aren't well supported by the SDKs and the CLI.
