Package: virt-manager
Version: 1:1.4.0-5
Severity: normal

To enable EFI / UEFI support in virt-manager (it is greyed out otherwise), one
must install the ovmf package.

EFI / UEFI is pretty widespread and available in the majority of modern
operating systems these days.

Is there any particular reason why we have to resort to manually installing
ovmf ourselves (and hopefully not forget to remove it if we ever decide to
uninstall virt-manager)?
