Unrelated to your post - it would be nice to have the qemu docs hosted on qemu.org, and even nicer if someone figures out how to theme them to fit in with the website style instead of being bare black & white pages with no navigation :-) Regards, Daniel -- |: https://berrange.com -o- https://www.flickr.com/photos/dberrange :| |: https://libvirt.org -o- https://fstop138.berrange.com :| |: https://entangle-photo.org -o- https://www.instagram.com/dberrange :|
