Hi,

So far in virt-manager one had to click on a shut off vm in the
"Shutoff" state to see if it has a saved image: once the item is
selected then the "play" icon will be "Run" or "Restore". This means
that in case one has a lot of VMs, it's hard to get an overview of what
VM has a saved image and what not.

The attached patch changes the "Shutoff" status message to "Saved" in
case the vm has a saved image.


Good idea, I've pushed your patch:

Awesome idea; in fact, I think 'virsh list --all' should probably also be enhanced to do something similar (show "saved" instead of "shutoff", and perhaps requiring a new --managed-save flag so as not to break back-compat). Note that virsh 0.9.4 is gaining 'virsh dominfo' as a way of querying whether a managed save image exists (previously virsh had no way to expose that information), but 'virsh dominfo' on a single domain at a time is much slower than doing it in bulk in 'virsh list'.

Alas, we've missed the deadline for getting a patch like that into libvirt 0.9.4.
