The question came up in the comments about using ova format with rhevm-image-uploader.

The Administration Guide does not mention ova files at all. It would be good to declare somewhere (⁠16.4. The Image Uploader Tool) that ova files are basically an ovf package stored as a TAR archive, and work with the uploader tool.

Assigning to Byron for review.

Users can use the engine-image-uploader tool to upload both OVF and OVA files, but only OVF is mentioned in the documentation; OVA files should be mentioned alongside OVF, and a brief description of the difference between the two should be added.
