Re: Availability of RHEL build of Bexar release of OpenStack Nova


Thierry, we could propose libguestfs patch to trunk, but have concerns with
it. First there is no libguestfs package for ubuntu and libguestfs people
still looking for ubuntu mantainer (http://libguestfs.org/FAQ.html#binaries).
We could create PPA if it will be enough for now, but for next openstack
release official packages of libfuestfs will be necessary.  Next one is
architectural: should we add new flag for choosing NBD/libguestfs?
