Re: [Libvir] ANNOUNCE: Ruby bindings for libvirt

Hi David,

I'm pleased to announce the availability of Ruby bindings for libvirt.

The main site for them is http://libvirt.org/ruby
API docs can be found at http://libvirt.org/ruby/api/index.html

An initial release is at http://libvirt.org/ruby/download - the bindings
are mostly complete, though there are a number of less frequently used
functions that are not covered yet.

Please send all your patches (and comments/questions) to this list.

Two suggestions on making the binding more ruby-ish:

1. Let opening a connection yield a conn object where possible so that we can write something like this:

  Libvirt::open("qemu:///system") do |conn|
    dom = conn.lookupDomainByName("mydomain")

At the end of the block, conn.close will be automatically called as a cleanup action.

2. Change method calls on ruby objects to use underscores instead of camelcase. For instance, conn.lookupDomainByName should be conn.lookup_domain_by_name instead.
