I was discussing $subject on #openstack-nova, Nikola Dipanov suggested it's worthwhile to bring this up on the list.
I was looking at http://kilodesignsummit.sched.org/ and noticed there's no specific session (correct me if I'm wrong) that's targeted at coordination between OpenStack <-> libvirt <-> QEMU/KVM. Nova, as one of the high-profile customers (to borrow Nikola's phrasing) of libvirt/QEMU/KVM projects, would benefit from better coordination and to keep track of what's happening in the lower layers of open source virtualization stack. Also, libvirt is the virtualization driver that upstream OpenStack infrastructure relies on for Gating. (A relevant thread from openstack-dev list). I have not attended an OpenStack design summit before, but if I have to guess: this topic falls under libvirt driver/cross-project sessions or some kind of unconference/BoF that's done on the fly while co-ordinating notes in an etherpad. Correct? On a related note, I just returned from KVM Forum/LinuxCon Europe. More than a couple of developers expressed interest in closer collaboration with OpenStack layer. For those not familiar, KVM Forum is a developer event that mainly focuses on KVM, QEMU, libvirt projects and their integration work. My report of the conference in plain text here.  http://lists.openstack.org/pipermail/openstack-dev/2014-July/040421.html "fair standards for all hypervisor drivers"  https://kashyapc.fedorapeople.org/virt/kvmforum-linuxcon-eu-2014-trip-report.txt -- /kashyap _______________________________________________ OpenStack-dev mailing list OpenStackfirstname.lastname@example.org http://lists.openstack.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/openstack-dev
