Description Richard W.M. Jones 2013-03-11 11:37:15 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #861375 +++

qemu-img info currently give me info like this:

image: /home/alex/.local/share/gnome-boxes/images/Fedora 16
file format: qcow2
virtual size: 11G (11794287616 bytes)
disk size: 4.5G
cluster_size: 65536


Note upstream there is a patch floating around which adds
JSON output to qemu-img info.  This is useful because it's
a big security problem to try to parse the text output from
this command.  See:
