    426426Currently the AM API defines several possible states as valid returns in !SliversStatus: {{{configuring}}}, {{{ready}}}, {{{unknown}}}, and {{{failed}}}. This change changes and expands that list of valid states, and explicitly defines the expected states after each AM API method call. Additionally, this change provides a mechanism for aggregates to supply their own states.

    433433This change introduces a new method, providing a generic way to act on slivers in an AM or resource type specific way. This method shall be used to 'start' or 'stop' or 'restart' resources that have been allocated but not started by !CreateSlivers or !RedeemTicket. It may also be used to change the state of slivers (or their contained resources) in an aggregate or resource specific way. Some aggregates may use this method to change configuration details of allocated resources. This might include changing acceptable login keys.
