Good day.

I unable to find documentation about plugin creation... 

I still polishing antispoofing patch and right now I'm thinking about
best place to keep restriction.

My idea: keep them in other-config of VIF, something like:

other-config: allow_ipv4=,

I'll parse it in vif script and apply them to interface, but main
problem is transfer of rules from xapi database to xenstore.

(my previous version used an local file - that was ugly and error prone,
in our deployment we used special connector to our management database),
but I'd like to make this fully xapi-centric. 

I know about OF-controller, but VDS from Citrix is not opensource, and
all others doesn't looks very nice for me - especially because of new
point of failure. Add it only for simple antispoofing is not very good

Any ideas/suggestions about rules transfer from xapi database to vif
script?  Thanks.
