Hi list,

The following wiki page provides detailed information on "Volume life cycle extensions"
or more fondly referred to as Hooks. Hooks are scripts/executables that would
be run on the trigger of events like volume-start, volume-stop, etc. This allows admin
to customise her volume 'deployment' work-flow. Of course it is not arbitrarily expressive/powerful


Hope to hear comments on how we should take this feature forward. I am thinking we
should someday have a community repository of custom workflows built around Hooks
that we can recommend each other.
