Re: adding parameters to create_volume function - encryption

StarCluster only needs the first 3 function parameters, thus it relies on
the default parameters for boto's create_volume() function. If all you want
is to pass in the encrypted boolean, then you can add encrypted=True to the
list of parameters for create_volume().

For you code to be general purpose enough to be included, you will need to
add logic so that is does not always pass the encrypted=True bool into the
function all the time, and instead read the user's choice from the command
line (see
