[Libguestfs] Plan for libguestfs 1.14



[Since Hilko asked me about this on IRC ...]

The current plan is to rebase libguestfs in RHEL 6.3:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=719879

I would like to get as many features from upstream libguestfs into
this as possible, but also make sure they have been well-tested by
Fedora users.  Also there are some new tools arriving in libguestfs
upstream in the current development branch (1.13.x):

 - virt-alignment-scan
   http://libguestfs.org/virt-alignment-scan.1.html

 - virt-sparsify
   http://libguestfs.org/virt-sparsify.1.html

 - A tool (or tools) to replace virt-clone
   https://rwmj.wordpress.com/2011/05/11/virt-tools-survey-virt-clone/

So this is my plan, assuming no one has any strong objections:

(1) Continue development of the new virt tools in libguestfs for the
    rest of this month.

(2) Release 1.14.0 new stable branch around the end of this month (Oct'11)

(3) Put this new stable version into Fedora 16 after 16 is released.

(4) Test, test, test.  Backport bugfixes into 1.14.x branch as per the
    usual plan.

(5) Put 1.14.x into RHEL 6.3 (around 1Q 2012).

Comments?

virt-top is 'top' for virtual machines.  Tiny program with many
powerful monitoring features, net stats, disk stats, logging, etc.
