Re: [Libguestfs] Proposed timetable for libguestfs 1.6

Tasks before 1.6:

- Make sure that C inspection is code is used in all possible places.
  Currently there are issues in these tools:
    . virt-inspector (ie. Sys::Guestfs::Lib)
    . guestmount should have -i/-a/-d options updated to match guestfish

- Make sure guestfs_list_filesystems call is used in all possible places.
  (Currently just need to change Sys::Guestfs::Lib I think?)

- More testing of virt-resize changes, to avoid any possible regression
  when 1.6 comes out.  In particular still need to check that virt-resize
  --expand option works for all types of guests.

Important bugs to fix before 1.6 (because they would create ABI issues
if we tried to fix them afterwards):

- https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=638899
  /dev/mapper paths should not be returned from C inspection APIs

- https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=638901
  Appliance filename should not contain repository name

- https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=634246
  guestfs_part_get_parttype returns "loop" when run against a partition, LV or filesystem
  [document that this is not intentional, so that users don't think
  it is part of the ABI]
