The mixed fonts may be a rendering issue.

I can say that all of the links and images are fixed now and the changes
are live.

Sorry about the errors, something went wrong between the test and
production environments!

virtual machines out just yet. Large-scale, centralized management for
server and desktop virtual machines is available now, with the free and
open source software platform oVirt. This KVM-based management tool
provides production-ready VM management to organizations large and small,
and is used by universities, businesses, and even major airports. Join Red
Hat's Brian Proffitt on a tour of oVirt plus a fun look at how VM
management and cloud computing *do* work together.

[ovirt-users] [Discussion] Office Hours for oVirt Community

2015-04-29 Thread Brian Proffitt
All:

There has been some discussion lately of dropping the weekly status/sync
meeting on Wednesdays in favor of a less formal set of IRC office hour
sessions.

The current suggestion is that these office hours will be held for set
half-hour periods, moderated by a rotation of community members.
Discussions should be open, answering all questions and discussing any
cross-team/community-wide issues as needed.


Tentatively, these would be held twice a week, Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Probably one set for an optimal West Asia/Europe time slot, and another
more suited for North and South America. Ideally, a potential third
meeting time would help cover East Asia and Australia.

Thoughts on this are welcome... we would like to move forward with the
new format in May.

Peace,
Brian

Re: [ovirt-users] Agenda for today oVirt Weekly Sync

2015-04-15 Thread Brian Proffitt
As noted in users list, I will be unable to attend today's meeting due to a 
child's dr. appointment. I have laid out my suggestions for changing the format 
of the meeting [1], and hope they will be debated.

For events; the most important thing is yet-another request for help at Grazer 
Linux Days in Graz, Austria this weekend[2]. Rene Koch is seeking backup help 
manning the booth at that event[2]

All other event and conference news is the same as two weeks ago.

Thanks,
Brian

  Etherpad will unfortunately not work, nor any tool that is available to Red

  Mailing lists can work, but we have to get around the problem of missed
  threads. The very fact that this thread went answered by just one person in
  the six days it has been live is evidence that threads on high-traffic
  mailing lists can get missed. Or consciously ignored. Encouraging people to
  attend a real-time synchronous meeting with a regular cadence can avoid
  that
  problem.
 
 Projects that get larger often split their mailing lists along the way.
 
 The real problem will be to split at the right place - to define the role of
 each list in a way that will make it very clear to people that want to post,
 what's the best list to use. This isn't easy at all. OTOH, if we have, say,
 discussion@, and keep the existing users@ and devel@, and someone posts to
 users@, and I think it should attract people on discussion@, it's much easier
 to move the discussion there, instead of starting to think who specifically
 I might want to Cc so that they notice.

Adding a new mailing list is possible, though I think that the parsing of which 
kind of discussion goes on what list might ultimately lead to confusion. Plus, 
there is a very real notion that the more channels people have to watch, the 
more chance there is that something will get missed. That's part of why we 
consolidated the various development-oriented mailing lists into [devel] last 
year in the first place.

[snip]

I have been thinking about this over the weekend, and I want to get my two 
cents in for a possible solution before the meeting tomorrow. Ironically, I 
will be unable to attend the weekly sync on April 15 due to a doctor's 
appointment for my daughter... but this in no way reflects that I am not taking 
the weekly meetings seriously.

I agree that in their current format, the weekly meetings can best be served by 
a newsletter format. An Etherpad could work, too, though I am concerned that it 
may fall out of date, since such rolling documents can get stale and a weekly 
newsletter would be deadline-oriented and thus less likely to be missed or 
ignored by contributors.

You will note that I stated in their current format. I still firmly believe 
that it is imperative we have some kind of real-time public meeting for any 
interested members of the oVirt community. We often lament that there is a lack 
of outside contributions into oVirt. Closing the door on one way for users 
and developers to reach the rest of the oVirt community is a step away from 
being open. Mailing lists are not always enough. But if the meeting has turned 
into a weekly status report, then perhaps that is not serving the broader 
community as well, either. 

What I suggest, then, is a series of office hours, where a rotating set of 
oVirt team members will commit to being on IRC to answer questions and be 
generally available. This could be done by one or two people, a few times a 
week/once a week, and not even a whole hour. Once a schedule is figured out, it 
would be posted and people would be openly encouraged to participate. This 
would be an open session on IRC... support questions, contributor inquiries, 
and just general commentary. It may be quiet sometimes, and sometimes it could 
be contentious, but the important thing would be that the community would know 
the office hours are there and they can use the time to address their questions 
directly to the oVirt team. This would reduce the requirement to attend a 
weekly IRC meeting by many people, but, if spread out a bit, will actually 
increase formal presence on the IRC channel.

I hope this suggestion is something that can help. I recognize that we all can 
use an hour of our lives back from yet-another-meeting, but the importance of 
real-time availability cannot be understated.

Peace,
Brian

  value to the project work and doesn't create a real sync on the ongoing
  topics. No decisions are done today there as well.
  
  What do you think should be the goal of the weekly meeting? How can we
  improve it? Is a newsletter a good enough update?
 
 I think a newsletter can replace the current sync format.
 
[snip]

Etherpad will unfortunately not work, nor any tool that is available to Red 
Hat-only community members. Any medium we evaluate has to be publicly 
available, or it is of little use to the oVirt community.

Mailing lists can work, but we have to get around the problem of missed 
threads. The very fact that this thread went answered by just one person in the 
six days it has been live is evidence that threads on high-traffic mailing 
lists can get missed. Or consciously ignored. Encouraging people to attend a 
real-time synchronous meeting with a regular cadence can avoid that problem.

I am not set on what the format/structure of such a public meeting should be, 
but we need to think about:

* What do we want to achieve?
* What decisions are we going to make?
* What is the role of the attendees? 
* Who gets what out of the meeting?   

One way to conduct such meetings could be the stakeholder/observer model from 
agile development meetings, otherwise known as the chicken and the pig 
model[1]. This would essentially be a variation of what we do know, with 
statuses given by stakeholders and questions reserved at the end for observers 
and participants.But people can at anytime ask to be upgraded to stakeholder 
status for that meeting.

I think that curating weekly meetings and saying here are the issues that will 
be discussed and keeping those issues interesting could be a way to go. Like 
what new features *should* be added to 3.6? or how *can* we position/improve 
ourselves against X? 

Peace,
BKP

Rene Koch is hosting a booth at Grazer Linuxtage on April 25[1], and would like 
to know if anyone from the EU would like to swing in and help man the booth on 
that day. 

It's about a 3.5 hour from Brno. Any takers?

[ovirt-users] Updated Time: Community Sync Meeting

2015-03-11 Thread Brian Proffitt
All:

Because of the change in daylight savings time for the US and not other 
countries, this week's meeting will still be held at 1000 US Eastern, which is 
1600 in TLV and 1500 in Brno.

If it's any consolation, I am in Singapore this week, so it's at 2200 for me.

See you in about 75 minutes!

[ovirt-users] Want to Be Mentor?

2015-03-02 Thread Brian Proffitt
oVirt is pleased to announce it will be participating in the May-August 2015 
round of Outreachy, organized by the GNOME Foundation, Software Freedom 
Conservancy, and Red Hat.

Outreachy helps women (cis and trans) and genderqueer get involved in free and 
open source software. The program provides a supportive community for beginning 
to contribute any time throughout the year and offers focused internship 
opportunities twice a year with a number of free software organizations.

If anyone has a project they'd like to add to the list of ideas at[1], there is 
still time. Applications will open tomorrow. Right now we are confirmed for at 
least one intern, but there should be funding for at least one more.

Thanks!
Brian

[ovirt-users] [GSoC] Announcing the 2015 Google Summer of Code!

2015-02-09 Thread Brian Proffitt
Hey, oVirt Community!

Though there was some question regarding oVirt's eligibility in the 2015 Google 
Summer of Code, it turns out that we *are* eligible to apply for the program 
again. Applications for potential mentoring organizations are now open and are 
due at 1100 PST (1900 UTC) on Feb. 20, 2015.

http://www.google-melange.com/gsoc/homepage/google/gsoc2015

As with last year, we would need to come up with projects for students to work 
on. The projects can be different skill levels, and they can be modular. They 
should also be doable within eight weeks in a summer with mentor help. 

If you are interested in mentoring such a project, visit 
http://google-opensource.blogspot.com/2015/02/mentoring-organization-applications-now.html
 for more information, then come to http://www.ovirt.org/Summer_of_Code so we 
can coordinate ideas prior to submitting to Google.

Given the issues from last summer, it is very important that all mentors be 
very familiar with project deadlines. If you have any questions, please contact 
me as soon as possible

Peace,
Brian

[ovirt-users] [Event] 2015 oVirt Asia Workshop

2015-02-04 Thread Brian Proffitt
As oVirt strives to become the best open source and comprehensive data center 
virtualization management suite, and its community rapidly evolves and grows, 
one of the ways its vibrant community connects is through our Global Workshops. 
The events are conducted solely to introduce new users and veteran oVirt admins 
to new features and new techniques found in oVirt, as well as provide a forum 
for our users to connect directly with the development team behind oVirt.

With that in mind, we are pleased to announce that registration is now open for 
the 2014 oVirt Workshop!

The next 2015 oVirt workshop will be co-located with the FOSSAsia in Singapore 
on March 14, 2015. This workshop is designed to encourage collaboration in our 
community, lay the foundation for best practices in oVirt use, convey end-user 
stories, and help answer questions about the project from both a developer and 
user's perspective.

For more information, and to register for the event, visit the Workshop page[1] 
today!

[ovirt-users] Slide Templates--New for 2015!

2015-01-21 Thread Brian Proffitt
All:

I have been asked to provide slide templates for presentations that might be 
created for future events. Through 2014, we have been using the green-on-white 
slide template, and now, thanks to Eidan Hildesheim, we have a new 2015 edition 
that is based more on the Patternfly interface.

These template presentations are provided to build new slides for oVirt 
presentations. They can be downloaded and used as-is, or Saved As template 
files within OpenOffice and LibreOffice.

The templates, as well as a whole host of pre-made presentations (which are all 
under the Creative Commons license), are available on the oVirt.org slide 
page[1].

Thanks!

[ovirt-users] Community ads on StackOverflow, 1st half 2015

2015-01-08 Thread Brian Proffitt
We have a new community ad set to go for the next StackOverflow campaign for 
the first half of the year. Allon Mureinik has posted it at:

http://meta.stackoverflow.com/a/283016/2422776

Now we just need some upvotes there to have the ad approved. The current 
threshold is +6. If you are a member of the StackOverflow network, we could use 
the support!

Thanks!

 for a booth at the event. There is still time
to get your talks into the IaaS and Virt devrooms.  (bkp, 15:48:05)
  * Now that travel is wrapped up, I am working on getting meetup and
workshop materials ready for anyone who wants to present on oVirt at
a local event.  (bkp, 15:48:09)
  * 11th Intl. Conf. on Open Source Systems CFP Open Through Jan. 10

* other topics  (bkp, 15:51:11)
  * A big welcome to our new OPW interns! Be ready to assist with any of
their questions as they lurk about the channel and the lists!  (bkp,
15:51:23)
  * It was brought to my attention this morning that ovirt.org/stats has
not been working for a while. I have asked misc to look into it.
(bkp, 15:51:26)
  * Speaking of stats, downloads for oVirt engine in Oct. totaled 1460
from resources.ovirt.org. This is down from 2194 downloads in Sept.
Likely now that 3.5 is rolling out, this trend will likely change.
(bkp, 15:51:29)
  * One of the big goals we should have for 2015 is figuring out a way
to determine actual installs of oVirt. If anyone has ideas on how we
can pull such information together, let's get a discussion going on
the users mailing list.  (bkp, 15:51:33)
  * Finally, there is an informal survey out on the users mailing list
now about extending oVirt support to Debian/Ubuntu. Got thoughts on
this? Here's the thread:
http://lists.ovirt.org/pipermail/users/2014-November/029209.html

[ovirt-users] oVirt Monthly Newsletter: October 2014

2014-11-03 Thread Brian Proffitt
October 2014 was a big month for oVirt. A new release, a new workshop, a new 
way of installing oVirt... there was nothing about October that didn't feel 
like success for the community and the software. As we start looking ahead to 
oVirt 3.6, here's a look back at one memorable month!


In the Community


oVirt is very happy to announce its participation in the GNOME Foundation's 
Outreach Program for Women: http://www.ovirt.org/Outreach_Program_for_Women 
Registration closed on Oct. 22, and have two excellent participants working 
with the oVirt community.

With all of the work being done on oVirt 3.5, our development team took the 
time to create some videos and deep-dive hangouts about 3.5 features: 
http://community.redhat.com/blog/2014/09/a-cinematic-peek-at-ovirt-3-5/

October 16 was the next big event for the oVirt community, the 2014 KVM Forum 
oVirt Workshop in Düsseldorf, Germany. Learn more at 
http://community.redhat.com/blog/2014/10/ovirt-workshop-2014/ and 
http://ow.ly/i/7gCmZ

Other October events for oVirt included:

On October 19, the journey to our next release was complete, and oVirt 3.5 was 
released! http://community.redhat.com/blog/2014/10/ovirt-3-5-rolls-out/

Along with the release of oVirt 3.5, a new User Guide 
(http://www.ovirt.org/OVirt_User_Guide) and Administrator Guide 
(http://www.ovirt.org/OVirt_Administration_Guide) were released, ready to help 
people using oVirt faster!

Earlier in October, ovirt-3.5 ovirt-guest-agent Linux builds were also made 
available:

Deep Dives and Technical Discussions


oVirt and Docker are proving to be a great combination! Moran Goldboim rolls 
out a two-part blog on how you can install oVirt as a Docker container today! 
(http://community.redhat.com/blog/2014/10/ovirt-dockerized/, 
http://community.redhat.com/blog/2014/10/ovirt-dockerized-part-2/)

Re: [ovirt-users] ovirt presentation template -- google docs format?

2014-10-21 Thread Brian Proffitt
I was thinking that we could have a darker-themed template, possibly based on 
the background wallpaper for oVirt Live. Instead of dead center, the oVirt logo 
could be set in the upper-left or -right corner.

Any PatternFly-influenced touches (fonts, colors, etc) would be nice as well.

[ovirt-users] [New Documentation] oVirt User Guide (Please Review!)

2014-10-03 Thread Brian Proffitt
I would like to announce the posting of a new page on the oVirt site: the oVirt 
User Guide[1]. 

I know what you're thinking: didn't we just release the oVirt Administration 
Guide? Why, indeed we did[2]! But this was a shorter document, and so did not 
take as long to convert.

This guide, adapted to MediaWiki form with the help of Red Hat's Content 
Services team, should be up to date as of oVirt 3.4. But, it is a living 
document and, like the Administration Guide, it needs further review! I ask 
everyone to take start poking at this documentation once oVirt 3.5 is released 
and people get familiar with the new release, so as to identify procedures that 
have changed, and new features that must be added. 

Please use Bugzilla to assign bugs in these document to me, or, if you have 
wiki privileges, edit as needed.

Up next: a revised Quick Start Guide to get people launched into oVirt as fast 
as possible.

Jon Benedict has a theory: VMware ESX and Red Hat's OpenStack implementation,

can change this, says Eduardo Ramos

Ramos has also examined internal/isolated networks on oVirt

experiences with the Shell in the Box UI plugin for oVirt

[ovirt-users] [New Documentation] oVirt Administrator's Guide (Please Review!)

2014-09-30 Thread Brian Proffitt
After several weeks of conversion and updating, I would like to announce the 
posting of a new page on the oVirt site: the oVirt Administrator's Guide[1]. 
This guide, adapted to MediaWiki form with the help of Red Hat's Content 
Services team, should be up to date as of oVirt 3.4. 

Given the impending release of oVirt 3.5, I invite everyone to take start 
poking at this documentation once oVirt 3.5 is released and people get familiar 
with the new release to identify procedures that have changed, and new features 
that must be added. 

Please use Bugzilla to assign bugs in this document to me.

Up next: an oVirt User's Guide that focuses on the User Portal, followed by a 
revised Quick Start Guide. Eventually, we hope to have more dedicated resources 
devoted to oVirt's documentation, and this new set of documents will be a good 
starting point.

Peace,
Brian

[ovirt-users] Registration Now Open for the oVirt Workshop, Oct. 16!

2014-09-23 Thread Brian Proffitt

As oVirt strives to become the best open source and comprehensive data center 
virtualization management suite, and its community  rapidly evolves and grows, 
one of the ways its vibrant community connects is through our Global Workshops. 
The events are conducted solely to introduce new users and veteran oVirt admins 
to new features and new techniques found in oVirt, as well as provide a forum 
for our users to connect directly with the development team behind oVirt.

With that in mind, we are pleased to announce that registration is now open for 
the 2014 oVirt Workshop[1]!

The 2014 oVirt workshop will be co-located with the KVM Forum[2] in Düsseldorf, 
Germany[3]on October 16, 2014. This workshop is designed to encourage 
collaboration in our community, lay the foundation for best practices in oVirt 
use, convey end-user stories, and help answer questions about the project from 
both a developer and user's perspective. 

Attendees can register free-of-charge[4] to the Workshop alone, or, if 
attending LinuxCon EU[5], CloudOpen Europe[6], Embedded Linux Conference[7], or 
KVM Forum[8], can also add this free Workshop to their itineraries when 
registering.

We look forward to seeing you there!

[ovirt-users] [Speaking Opportunity] Central PA Open Source Conference 2014

2014-09-18 Thread Brian Proffitt
If anyone in the eastern Pennsylvania/New Jersey area is interested, the oVirt 
community has been personally invited to have a speaker attend CPOSC on Nov. 1 
in Lancaster, PA. Unfortunately I cannot attend, as I will be traveling that 
day. But this is a great opportunity to speak to a green-field audience about 
oVirt and what it can do.

If you would like to give a talk about your favorite datacenter management 
platform, visit the CFP page at http://www.cposc.org/ and post a proposal. 
(Ignore the Sept. 10 deadline; oVirt is assured a slot.) If you do want to 
present, we can send you presentation materials to use for an overview talk, so 
let me know!

Peace,
Brian

[ovirt-users] Who's Using oVirt 3.5?

2014-09-16 Thread Brian Proffitt
As we get ready to release oVirt 3.5, we would like to include user experiences

Re: [ovirt-users] Why Ovirt do not have - User community Forum

2014-08-18 Thread Brian Proffitt
Chandrahasa:

(Apologies for the delayed reply, I was on vacation.)

This is an ongoing debate in the oVirt community. On the one hand, a forum 
would lend itself well to the benefits you describe, but on the other hand, the 
community has grown comfortable with the mailing list format. We have 
considered both, but separate channels could divert attention away from 
either channel.

Currently, we are exploring an upcoming Mailman 3 tool, known as hyperkitty, 
which should enable using the mailing list content much more like a forum. This 
*should* give us the kind of access you are describing.

Peace,
BKP

   just out of pure curiosity: In a BZ [1] Allon mentions SPM will go away
   in ovirt 3.6.
   
   This seems like a major change for me. I assume this will replace
   sanlock as well? What will SPM be replaced with?
  
  No, sanlock is not going anywhere.
  
  The change is that we will not have an SPM node, but any node that need to
  make meta data changes, will take a lock using sanlock while it make the
  changes.
  
  Federico: can you describe in more details how it is going to work?
 
 Most of the information can be found on the feature page:

[ovirt-users] [Documentation] Assistance Needed with User-Facing Documentation

2014-07-10 Thread Brian Proffitt
All:

The Red Hat ECS team has made a great effort to convert some of the more 
important downstream documentation to a MediaWiki format that we can post on 
oVirt.org as an official set of user- and admin-facing documentation. This is 
being done as a bootstrapping effort to get our upstream documentation up to 
date and take a big step towards making the upstream documentation the 
canonical source for documentation in the near future.

Before that can happen, we need to get this RHEV-oriented information ported 
over to oVirt nomenclature and screenshots taken for oVirt and added to the 
documents as well.

I have placed the three guides

* Administration Guide[1]
* User's Guide[2]
* Installation Guide[3]

on the oVirt site as unlinked pages. General wording has been changed from RHEV 
to oVirt, but not always. Each of these documents must be reviewed and 
completely adapted to oVirt 3.4 before they can be posted as official 
documentation. Specifically:

* Review all text to ensure proper steps and descriptions for oVirt features 
and procedures
* Review all text to remove downstream-specific text
* Review all code for changes in package names on on-screen displays
* Replace all downstream RHEV screenshots with upstream oVirt 3.4 screenshots 
(Max width: 1024px)

I will be stepping through these documents to edit them in more detail under 
these guidelines, but help is most assuredly needed, in order to get this done 
in a timely manner. oVirt.org wiki users can visit these pages, review them, 
and add their changes. MediaWiki has limited version control, so it would be 
best to edit sections instead of entire documents, to minimize stepping on 
others' changes. Editing by section will also help us track the sections that 
have been edited, using the pages' histories. 

Thank you in advance for all of your help on this project... when finished, 
this will represent a significant improvement to oVirt's documentation, and 
make oVirt that much easier to use.

Peace,
Brian

 You should know that since we now have a mirrorlist (which in terms of
 hit count is already in the top 3) the number could be much lower than
 the actual RPM downloads. I'd be interested how much traffic is served
 by mirrors.

** (http://mondomaine.paris/)

Assuming its pioneering role, the Open World Forum is ranked within the first 
hundred websites to switch to the “.paris” TLD Wednesday 4th of June. It 
represents one more step towards a strong digital space for the OWF, giving us 
a complementary approach to the physical space on which the OWF was based upon. 
As an ambassador of this innovative initiative which promotes business activity 
on our territory, the OWF gets a local anchorage that measures up to its 
international ambition.

Registrars, selected websites representatives and political figures were 
gathered at the first floor of the Eiffel tower to welcome this new domain name 
providing an original link between a digital location and a geographical 
location which has benefits from an excellent brand image. During the press 
conference, the OWF's team stood alongside with Anne Hidalgo, mayor of Paris, 
Jean-Louis Missika, the Deputy Mayor who has been carrying the project for six 
years, and a lot of others famour ambassadors (such as RATP, Desley, Paris 
Airport, DS World, Spotteo, Bercy Arena or the Eiffel tower).

[ovirt-users] Stats for oVirt Downloads: Jan-May 2014

2014-06-26 Thread Brian Proffitt
All:

For some time, traffic statistics for the sites in the ovirt.org domain (lists, 
resources, gerrit, and linode01) have been collected and organized using 
awstats[1] at stats.ovirt.org[2]. From the data provided for resources, I have 
been able to put together what should be a fairly definitive set of statistics 
for software downloads within the oVirt Project.

Methodology

The statistics that were analyzed were for five parts of the project:

* Engine
* Live
* Node
* Engine Reports
* Engine dwh

Downloads of the Engine RPM file, it was determined, would be indicative of 
actual oVirt installs. The allinone RPMs were not analyzed at this time, since 
installing this RPM is a choice made during the installation process itself. 
Tracking the Engine Reports and dwh RPMs was done to determine the popularity 
of these two tools and to ensure their numbers were comparable.

To count downloads, data was gathered each month that listed the total 
downloads of every file, a number derived from the total hits each file had, 
minus any 206 hits, which indicated incomplete downloads. Key files for Engine, 
Engine Reports, and Engine dwh were identified and the data filtered to include 
counts for each one of the files, in whatever version released.

Tracking of Live and Node RPMs was already set up within the awstats reporting, 
and was taken directly from awstats in each month.

If there is any part of this methodology that is in error, feedback is very 
much appreciated.

Presentation of Data

Data was aggregated using Pivot Tables in Google Docs, and the application of 
SUMIFS functions in the same spreadsheet document. This document is still being 
formatted into a more presentable form, but until then, I wanted to deliver 
some preliminary results to the community for the first five months of the 
year. 

It will be noted that in general, download numbers are on the rise, 
particularly around the time oVirt 3.4 was released. There are significant gaps 
in downloads of Engine Reports and Engine dwh. I am still investigating the 
cause of this lack of data.

Re: [ovirt-users] oVirt All-In-One instructions for presentation?

2014-06-23 Thread Brian Proffitt
Greg:

How soon is soon? 

My concern here is that I don't know how much we can show them on networking 
and migration, when these are self-contained machines. I think we need to 
create an image that includes some VMs to play with, too. I have had spotty 
luck connecting to the Glance repository of images.

 I'm not a feature expert, so I'm not sure what else people love and would
 want to see in a self-demo. Maybe Itamar has some ideas.
 
 Brian, when do you think we can have this drawn up by? I'd like to give the
 conference leaders our content soon so we're committed to having it in the
 lab.

  Not at this time, but I will want to draw some up.
  
  A brief outline that I have in mind is:
  
  1) Introduction to oVirt GUI
  2) Setting up a VM
  3) Managing Multiple VMs
  4) Enable user procurement of VMs
  
  Since it's the all in one LiveUSB version, we can't show the live migration
  feature, which is too bad. Are there other features we should add?

Well that settles that :) Live USB sticks it is.

   Hi Brian,
   
   It would be fantastic if you could rework this topic into a lab.
   You
   do
   not
   need to be present.  Just put together a one or two page
   'worksheet'
   that
   walks Lab attendees through oVirt.  If you like, you could also
   sign
   up
   for
   an 'office hours' timeslot, where you could discuss oVirt with
   Lab
   attendees
   and assist them with the worksheet.
   
   So it sounds like it can be any length. This is something
   attendees
   will
   come
   into the lab and try on their own time.

Not really hardware, but a software solution that would be a little more robust 
than the current LiveUSB version.

But what's key to this discussion is, what features of oVirt should be 
highlighted for a self-guided demo? Joop, you've done demos in the past, what 
features did you highlight?

Peae,

[ovirt-users] Vote for oVirt ad on Stack Overflow!

2014-06-20 Thread Brian Proffitt
For those of you with memberships to Stack Overflow, the site is hosting free 
vote-based advertisements for getting contributors for open source projects. 
The program will feed live remnant ads on Stack Overflow if an ad gets enough 
votes.

oVirt has had an ad created [1] (thanks to Tuomas Kuosmanen!) that can be voted 
on by Stack Overflow members. For fairness' sake, feel free to vote for any of 
the other projects you like [2].

I would also like to thank Allon Mureinik for pointing out this opportunity and 
using his Stack Overflow credentials to get the ad posted!

Peace,
Brian

[ovirt-users] New oVirt Case Study: Judici

2014-06-19 Thread Brian Proffitt
All:

I am pleased to let you know that I have posted a new case study about oVirt on 
ovirt.org. The new study is a small government project, Judici, with a big 
impact: managing the court documentation for 68 of the 102 county courts in the 
State of Illinois.

Take a look[1] and feel free to spread the word though social media.

Thanks!

[ovirt-users] Fwd: Say Hello to the oVirt Engine Virtual Appliance

Subject: Say Hello to the oVirt Engine Virtual Appliance

Hey,

one of the things on the list for oVirt 3.5 was the oVirt Virtual Appliance.

Huh, what’s that? You might ask. Well, imagine a cloud image with oVirt Engine 
3.5
and it’s dependencies pre-installed, and a sane default answer file for
ovirt-engine-setup. All of this delivered in an OVA file. The intention is to 
get 
you a running oVirt Engine without much hassle.

Furthermore this appliance can be used in conjunction with - and is actually
intended for - the Self Hosted Engine feature, and the upcoming oVirt 
Node Hosted Engine plugin.

More informations and links about the appliance and how to build it can be 
found here:

http://dummdida.tumblr.com/post/88944206100/say-hello-to-the-ovirt-engine-virtual-appliance

Testing it with hosted engine is the next step.
