With the removal of autotools, you need to update the "INSTALL" file with
directions on how to build.

Yes, that branch is a work in progress, the todo.txt has an entry about
reworking the INSTALL file.

You shouldn't even need to install anything to actually develop virt-manager,
for the gtk3.2 branch it should be as simple as making changes and just
running virt-manager directly from the source tree ( ./virt-manager.py )
The only issue i hit with that branch so far is that I needed to
yum intsall python-distutils-extra before running setp.py otherwise
it just got a python error about missing import.
And even that shouldn't be necessary for most dev purposes, ./virt-manager.py
should just work without touching setup.py

Right now I am developing on 0.9.4-4 (git plus rpm patches) but I believe it should not be that difficult to rebase to gtk3.2

I have IPv6 working on the display and have replaced IPy.py with ipaddr from the python-ipaddr package on the gui side (need to do the same for the tui side).

IPv4 only for the createnet wizard but both IPv4 and IPv6 on display. There are so many new capabilities in libvirt-networking that it is difficult to determine the best way to display them (or if they should be displayed at all). An example is dhcp-host and dhcp networks with no range but a bunch for dhcp-host specifications. It is not clear how best to display them.

It is also not clear how much editing/modify to add beyond start, stop, delete, and autostart. I do intend to add basic IPv6 configuration to the createnet wizard.

As far as the tui interface is concerned, I am not too interested besides getting rid of IPy.py. The virsh suite is a nice tui interface thank you very much. But, I am unaware of any gui applications (other then virt-manager and VM/connections) so this needs some improvement. I get the impression that gnome boxes is seen as the future but it just does not meet my needs.
