The Ganeti OS Parameter OSP_IMG_PERSONALITY contains a string dump of the following json:

[
 { 'path':'/path/to/file1', 'contents':'base64encodedfile1' },
 { 'path':'/path/to/file2', 'contents':'base64encodedfile2' },
 ...
 ...
]

This list of dictionaries contains all the files (base64 encoded) that need to be injected in the newly deployed Image.
The 'snf-image' OS Provider runs a hook that loads the json, decodes and stores the files in the corresponding paths.
If identical files already exist they are backed up as proposed by the OpenStack API:
