In this proposal description we would like to introduce a separate pool
type:fspool. Fspool provides and manages filesystems.
Below are listed possible examples of fspool, depending on source type:
volume, directory or network.
I'm struggling a little to understand what the overal purpose is
here. Can you step back a level and describe the overall problem
you're facing and what your use cases / goals are for this proposal.


The main purpose of this is to have a generic API to manage filesystems similar to storage API and be able to use these filesystems in domain XMLs defining containers. So ,it is a kind of abstraction of filesystem sources and backends. Also there can be some indirect benefits but they are not the aim.


I wonder, if my reply clarify the original message or it's still unclear and it's better to step back more and describe the problem in more details?
