A few randomly related points: - libguestfs 1.26 in Debian (and eventually in Ubuntu) finally gets rid of 'update-guestfs-appliance'. - Unfortunately Ubuntu still has the kernel permissions bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/759725 Fedora/RHEL has none of these issues. - There are a couple of easy to fix bugs that would greatly improve libguestfs usability in OpenStack: (1) Don't throw away debugging information: https://bugs.launchpad.net/nova/+bug/1279857 (2) [Don't think there's a bug# for this] The libvirt_inject_partition parameter doesn't adequately model what libguestfs can do for guests. Plus it's a global setting and ought to be a glance setting (or per disk/per template anyway). libguestfs has a rich API for inspecting guests, and that cannot be modelled in a single integer. http://libguestfs.org/guestfs.3.html#inspection Rich. -- Richard Jones, Virtualization Group, Red Hat http://people.redhat.com/~rjones Read my programming and virtualization blog: http://rwmj.wordpress.com Fedora Windows cross-compiler.
