Hi Steven,

Thank you for your feedback, we will definitely take your suggestion into

For future releases, we are planning to develop a VM templates repository.
The templates could be checked for frequent errors and missing mandatory
attributes before being saved into the templates pool.

Because this feature is still in the design process, ideas and comments are
more than welcome.
