Once again, I think that's up to the Virt team inside of Red Hat to own.
  And it's not like that's going to happen in a vacuum.  You're going to
talk to the virt team before you rebase something, right?  This isn't
supposed to be them following us without them knowing where we're going.
  We're going to make this a conversation, right?


It would be nice to see someone from the Virt team answering on a FAB
conversation. If they answer on fedora-devel ones I don't know..
because I don't know anyone on the virt team.
