I think at its simplest would be to specify workflow examples and how gdploy+Heketi would satisfy them. I will be sending out some possible workflows tomorrow.
Also, there is a python Heketi client in the works right now which would benefit gdeploy: https://github.com/heketi/heketi/pull/251 .

That would be great. Please let us know if you already have a plan on how
to make these two work.
