Re: [virt-tools-list] virt-manager release roadmap

So really just trying to understand what the release roadmap is. Right
now its been about 8 months since the last release of virtinst and
virt-manager. There's 37 patches in virtinst since the last release
and virt-manger has 42. Depending on the time frame of the GTK+3.2
branch release, I think there's an advantage to doing a virtinst
0.600.4 and virt-manager 0.9.5. But there's really 3 ways to go. A
basic bug fix release, looking at all the distros we're all carrying
anywhere from half-dozen to a dozen patches or a full master release
or wait until the GTK+ 3.2 release is ready. I'll be glad to put
together the proposed patchset for the bug fix release and send it to
the list if that's the route people want to go.

I believe there are a few stoppers before a new virt-manager based on the gtrk3.2 branch can be released.

1. virt-manager-tui is broken.

2. The Gtk/Gdk color stuff does not work.

While you can run the new virt-manager from a clone of the git, there appear to be a few things to be done so that it can be distributed as a tarball or rpm. I believe that python-distutils-extra is being used in place of autotools for packaging but I have no idea how to do that.

In general the gui side does work and I have had few problems implementing my future patch/patches to implement IPv6 support and a few other things dealing with networking and the glade-3 ui's.
