[Libguestfs] ANNOUNCE: libguestfs & virt-v2v & virt-p2v RHEL 7.2 preview packages available

[The subject line isn't strictly correct, as virt-p2v packages aren't
available right now, but will be shortly]

If you are running RHEL 7.1 then you may be interested in trying out
the newer RHEL 7.2 preview versions of:

 - libguestfs
 - virt-v2v (Technical Preview in RHEL 7.1, Supported in RHEL 7.2)
 - virt-p2v (Technical Preview in RHEL 7.2)

To install the preview repository, copy the attached file into

Then use this command to update virt-v2v:

  yum install virt-v2v libguestfs-tools-c libguestfs-xfs

To convert Windows guests you'll also need libguestfs-winsupport which
is finally available in RHN (V2VWIN channel) or you can get it from

Please note these packages are *not* supported by Red Hat.  If you
find bugs, please file them using the link below:


To downgrade back to the RHEL 7.1 supported packages, delete
/etc/yum.repos.d/libguestfs-RHEL-7.2-preview.repo , uninstall
libguestfs, then reinstall libguestfs from RHN.

I have not tested these packages on CentOS 7.1, but they will probably
work there too, and if they don't then let me know.
