Re: [libvirt] libvirt changes/certification questions

I am new to open source development and had a question about libvirt/KVM
support in the linux kernel. In general since many people are contributing
to the library, are there any 'standardized regressions or certification
tests' available that make sure that that the existing libvirt
infrastructure does not break with new changes? More particular, how does
one make sure that given kernel version is compatible with a given library

There is the libvirt-tck testsuite (in perl) that can be used to validate various expected behaviors. The kernel version is more likely to affect qemu-kvm behavior, and not libvirt proper, but running libvirt-tck can sometimes expose whether a qemu-kvm change (perhaps caused by a kernel change) was enough to cause user-visible regressions in libvirt behavior. Beyond that, anything you can add to automate regression testing would probably be appreciated.
