[libvirt] Release of libvirt-0.9.13



  Okay the new release is out and available as uauls at
    ftp://libvirt.org/libvirt/

along with rpms generated on Fedora16, the git tree is tagged too.
As suggested earlier it seems that the rate of commits is slowing
down a bit, for example it took one month an a half to accumulate the
300+ commits of this release, considering that there is uauslly a
slowdown during the summer months I plan to push the next release at
the end of August, well unless there is a lot of activities or something
urgent to push in the meantime.
