Keep in mind that Matt has a tendency to sometimes unfairly over-simplify others views ;-). More seriously, c'mon Matt; I went out of my way to spend time learning about Debian's packaging structure and trying to get the details right by talking to folks on #debian-backports. And as you may have seen, I marked the patch[*] as "RFC", and repeatedly said that I'm working on an agreeable lowest common denominator. > But we also know that new code also brings new not-yet-fixed bugs. Yep, of course. > Keep in mind the big picture here, we're talking about bumping from > minimum required (in Rocky) libvirt 1.3.1 to at least 3.0.0 (in Stein) > and qemu 2.5.0 to at least 2.8.0, so I think that's already covering > some good ground. Let's not get greedy. :) Sure :-) Also if there's a way we can avoid bugs in the default experience with minimal effort, we should. Anyway, there we go: changed the patch[*] to what's in Stretch.
