[pve-devel] [PATCH manager/widget-toolkit/docs v4 00/18] notifications: notification metadata matching improvements

This patch series attempts to improve the user experience when creating
notification matchers.

Some of the noteworthy changes:
  - Fixup inconsistent 'hostname' field. Some notification events sent
  the hostname including a domain, while other did not.
  This series unifies the behavior, now the field only includes the hostname
  without a domain. Also updated the docs to reflect this change.
  - Allow setting a custom backup job ID, similar how we handle it for
  sync/prune jobs in PBS (to allow recognizable names used in matchers)
  - Adding columns for backup job ID/replication job ID in the UI
  - New metadata fields:
    - backup-job: ID of the backup job (set for backups, unless they are 'ad-hoc' backups)
    - replication-job: ID of the replication job
  - Add an API that enumerates known notification metadata fields/values
  - Suggest known fields/values in match rule window
  - Some code clean up for match rule edit window
  - Extended the 'exact' match-field mode - it now allows setting multiple
    allowed values, separated via ',':
      e.g. `match-field exact:type=replication,fencing
    Originally, I created a separate 'list' match type for this, but
    since the semantics for a list with one value and 'exact' mode
    are identical, I decided to just extend 'exact'.
    This is a safe change since there are are no values where a ','
    makes any sense (config IDs, hostnames)

  - widget-toolkit relies on a new API endpoint provided by pve-manager
  - pve-manager needs the
    "utils: add extendable, translatable notifiction event descriptions"
    patch from the widget-toolkit-part - can be applied ahead of time
  - the changes in the backend for matching multiple values in "exact"
    mode have already been rolled out as of libpve-rs-perl 0.8.8
    --> this means that libpve-notify-perl (which pulls in libpve-rs-perl)
    must be bumped as well, in order for the GUI changes to make sense

  - v4:
    - widget-toolkit: break out changes for the utils module so that they
      can be applied ahead of time to ease dep bumping
    - don't show Job IDs in the backup/replication job columns
  - v3:
    - Drop already applied patches for `proxmox`
    - Rebase onto latest master - minor conflict resolution was needed
  - v2:
    - include 'type' metadata field for forwarded mails
      --> otherwise it's not possible to match them
    - include Maximilliano's T-b trailer in UI patches
