[Libvirt-announce] Release of libvirt-python-1.2.0



 So this is the first release fo the separated libvirt-python code base
out of the main libvirt git. In this case the two release have been made
in tandem to avoid disruptions, but there is no guarantee that the
future releases of both project will be bound together (though I will
try to sync those to minimize churn when possible !)

 Tarball and rpms are now available on the new location:
   ftp://libvirt.org/libvirt/python/

 The release obviously is mostly around making the switch to an
independant package, and making sure that this will build on older
version of libvirt already released. Hence a very large set of the
patches are specific to portability issues:

- Separating libvirt-python releases from libvirt releases (Daniel P. Berrange and Doug Goldstein)
