[Libguestfs] Status of libguestfs in Fedora, RHEL



Just a note (mainly to get it clear for *me*!) where we are with
libguestfs branches and Fedora/RHEL versions:

Fedora
  │
  ├── Fedora 16              libguestfs 1.16 (currently 1.16.29)
  │
  ├── Fedora 17              libguestfs 1.18 (currently 1.18.6)
  │
  ├── Fedora 18 (just        libguestfs 1.19.28, will move to
  │            branched)     stable 1.20 branch when it is ready
  │
  └── Rawhide                follows development releases as usual

Unfortunately a combination of factors make testing releases in Fedora
18+ impossible right now:

  - NTFS breakage with the new kernel (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/844485)
  - DWARF symbols are broken, making it challenging to run any valgrind
    tests

The unfortunate result is that Fedora 18+ releases aren't tested to
our usual high standards.

RHEL
  │
  ├── RHEL 5                 ancient libguestfs 1.2
  │     │                    (DO NOT USE this version except with virt-v2v,
  │     │                     and even then it's far better to use RHEL 6)
  │     │
  │     └── EPEL 5           libguestfs 1.19 from oldlinux branch, will
  │                          move to 1.20 when it is ready
  │
  │
  ├── RHEL 6
  │     │
  │     ├── RHEL 6.0         libguestfs 1.2 (no longer supported, DO NOT USE)
  │     │
  │     ├── RHEL 6.1         libguestfs 1.7.17 (no longer supported)
  │     │
  │     ├── RHEL 6.2         libguestfs 1.7.17 (no longer supported)
  │     │
  │     ├── RHEL 6.3         libguestfs 1.16.19 + RHEL patches
  │     │
  │     ├── RHEL 6.4         rebase along libguestfs 1.16 stable branch
  │     │
  │     └── RHEL 6.5         unknown, possibly rebase to 1.20 if
  │                          there is time and any demand for it
  │
  │
  └── RHEL 7                 intending to go with libguestfs 1.20
