Does your conversion affect how libvirt uses ssh for general communication?

Pretty sure I've seen some part of libvirt (other than migration) use
nc + ssh for general communication to remote qemu (ie with qemu+ssh://).

git grep '"nc"' has two hits:

src/qemu/qemu_migration.c:        const char *args[] = { "nc", "-U",
unixfile, NULL };

Will still need to exist for qemu 0.10.x and 0.11.x (so we'd need it for
RHEL 5.6, but not for Fedora or RHEL 6; we've already got other
RHEL-version-related checks in the specfile to make that a conditional
dependency).

src/remote/remote_driver.c:        cmd_argv[j++] = strdup (netcat ?
netcat : "nc");

Oh wow - we need to convert remote_driver.c over to virCommand.
However, that's the only other use of "nc", and it involves running nc
on the remote host, not on the local host, so you _don't_ need to
'Requires: nc' just because you installed libvirt-client; rather, it
seems like it should be libvirt (the server package) that should be
requiring nc.

Would like to confirm it and make patch if it is needed indeed.


In other words, I think we have a missing dependency if you install
libvirt but not libvirt-client; the reality is that both packages should
require nc (and libvirt-client can make the dependency conditional if I
improve migration on newer qemu).
