Blank template is quite useless and a constant source of confusion.
We should make it editable so people can set a system-wide defaults. When it's renamed to "Defaults" it would also be a bit more clear why it can't be removed and is hard-wired into many flows.
And as a bonus, we can replace some of the VdcOptions-only global things with simple edit of the "Default" template

address sub-version of defaults too
after consulting with Liz:
Short term, I think it is OK to rename the 'Blank' template to 'Defaults', allow users to edit it, etc.
towards 4.0, I think that we should re-think whether it makes sense to treat that 'Blank'/'Default' entity as a Template (i.e. display it in the Templates main tab, etc.), or does it make more sense to allow a completely different way of controlling the defaults for creating a VM from scratch.
Please note that the "38817: core: renamed the blank template to default" patch had to be rewerted because of backward compatibility - e.g. the implementation is that the blank template is editable but it is still named Blank. There is a possibility to rename it if the user decides to do so.

Tomas, thanks for your comments.
i added the a test case and specific about SPICE and VNC.
please approve the test plan,
yes, seems ok to me
try to verify on :
Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager Version: 188.8.131.52-0.1.el6
link to polarion test :
failed on the following test :
1. edit the blank template
2. got to Console tab
3. in Graphics protocol choose VNC+SPICE
4. create 2 vms with this template -
one with the 3.5 cluster and one with 3.6
The vm in 3.6 cluster will inheritance the VNC+SPICE and the vm in 3.5 should be inherit only SPICE but she also inheritance VNC+SPICE
Tomas, should i move this bug back to assigned?
In cluster level 3.5 you should not be able to create a VM which has both SPICE and VNC (regardless of Blank template setting). So, if the combo box contains the SPICE+VNC than it is a separate bug (which blocks this one from verification but still a separate one...).
