Hello Marcio,

We have remote administration working for the command line tools (like virsh), but virt-manager still has a few problems, so any help you can give there would be welcome.

Some other features off the top of my head:

- Fleshing out all the QEMU & KVM features, so that QEMU & KVM support is as good as Xen support. See all the 'x' squares on this page: http://libvirt.org/hvsupport.html

- Help with really getting virt-manager to work remotely. Allow drag-and-drop in virt-manager to migrate domains between hypervisors.

- Help porting and packaging for other systems (Debian, Gentoo, *BSD, Solaris, Windows, ... -- some of these have porting projects already, so your time is best spent joining and working with existing projects)

- More static analysis of code paths, particularly memory allocation/deallocation and error handling, where in both cases there are lots of little-used paths with problems (http://et.redhat.com/~rjones/cil-analysis-of-libvirt/)

 - Help Shuveb Hussain with OpenVZ work

 - VMWare

- I don't know how good the Portuguese translation of the libvirt / virt-manager strings is -- maybe it could do with checking.

Rich.
