I'd like to let you know and review the new project libvirt-snmp.
It's aim is to provide snmp functionality to libvirt. Right now it
supports only VM lifecycle stuff (start, suspend, destroy, ...)
and gathering info.

I think this is a great news for many libvirt users, especially in corporate sector.

We can also create an .rpm (see libvirt-snmp.spec.in) but thing is
in order to run libvirt-snmp subagent, snmpd.conf needs to be edited
first. Is there a way I can solve this? I mean overwriting it is ugly.
Or should i leave it just in the installation docs?

I'm not familiar with with RPM capabilities, but isn't there something like pre/post-inst script for such needs? Sed/awk and such inside. Also, eg. I have fixed Debian with their 'conf.d' and custom resp. "local" configs which are included (sourced) into main .conf and overriding it.

Anyway, I would create something like '/etc/snmpd.conf.libvirt' in package and let user know about it eg. "You have to edit/move file X". I'm not a huge fan of auto-magic which might do more harm than good.

But that's just my $0.02 USD.
