As I said, I gone through the list archives and got some insight on how to present my ideas.

I tried to use the thread started by Laine Stump (https://www.redhat.com/archives/libvir-list/2011-April/msg00591.html) as a model.

I just posted an update to that which changes things a bit based on suggestions from Dan Berrange:

https://www.redhat.com/archives/libvir-list/2011-May/msg01503.html
https://www.redhat.com/archives/libvir-list/2011-June/msg00383.html

The main difference is that, rather than using <network type="..."> to specify what kind of network is being configured, it now uses <forward mode='...'/>, but it also incorporates the idea of portgroups, which you may find useful. You may want to revisit your proposal after reading those messages (and the critiques that will hopefully be made of the latest proposal).


Please, forgive me if my RFC is too verbose: I tried to produce something good.

More details are almost always good :-)


In time: I'm willing to implement this idea as part of my postgraduate work.

Unless you're planning to do it in less than 2-3 weeks, there should be a good basis committed by the time you start.
