There has been some discussion in the past about generating more
machine-friendly output from pacemaker CLI tools for scripting and
high-level interfaces, as well as possibly adding a pacemaker REST API.

I've filed an RFE BZ


to design an output interface that would suit these goals. An actual
REST API is not planned at this point, but this would provide a key
component of any future implementation.

The question is what machine-friendly output should look like. The
basic idea is: for commands like "crm_resource --constraints" or
"stonith_admin --history", what output format would be most useful for
a GUI or other program to parse?

Suggestions welcome here and/or on the bz ...
