Re: [libvirt] Driver development



Hi,

I gathered information about that and I'll produce relevant documentation of my point tonight.

I'll be glad to do an informed and well structured work. Thanks!

For a starting point I'd recommend proposing your XML changes to the
list, and describe exactly what the new functionality will enable, and a
few use cases. Probably best to do this before starting any code so you
don't head in a wrong direction.

Check the past few month ML archives to see how some other developers
have proposed RFCs or XML changes.
