Add copy_from upload option to image creation in v2

Bug #1419040 reported by Julie Pichon on 2015-02-06

Bug Description

Horizon relies heavily on the copy_from attribute when creating new images, for example from feedback from deployers we even offer the option to entirely disallow direct file uploads [1] [2] and only let end-user create new images by indicating a URL.

It is my understanding that the copy_from attribute isn't currently implemented in Glance v2. As we slowly add proper support for v2 to Horizon [3] it would be really helpful if there was a way to create an image given a URL when using v2 also. If this is already tracked somewhere else, please me know! Thank you.

Thanks Louis! From the blueprint description it's not obvious to me yet
whether that will cover this use case, but I'll certainly keep an eye on
it as well.

I recently learned about Glance image import tasks that does what previous v1 copy_from does:

Should this be sufficient for Horizon?
