This is the single most coveted feature that comes up. It would be great if you guys can make it happen at GSoC :)Since virt-v2v can already quickly do that, I'm not sure the idea is big enough that it would be enough for such project. It would be basically a file chooser, button and running 'virt-v2v' with proper parameters if I'm not mistaken. Martin  https://libvirt.org/apps.htmlI've been reading up on virt-v2v as a potential one line command solution for guest import but it seems this specific usecase is not what it was made for and this feature was ripped out: https://rwmj.wordpress.com/2015/09/18/importing-kvm-guests-to-ovirt-or-rhev/#content
We're both talking about different things then. virt-v2v is supposed to be able to import OVA image, that is extract all the stuff from it and feed it to libvirt. Although I was only told that, I have no hands on experience with that. Totally different thing is importing only disk images. virt-install and virt-manager can already do that and that's not the case for virt-v2v.
