Main Inclusion Report for virt-manager


  1. Availability:; amd64 i386 powerpc

  2. Rationale:

    • virt-manager is a graphical console which acts as a front end to libvirt (already in main) locally or remotely, which in our case will be used to manage KVM guests
  3. Security:

    • CVE: none

    • Secunia history: none

    • No binaries running as root or suid/sgid nor daemons
    • Network activity: does not open any port or accept any incoming data
    • Does no directly process binary (video, audio, etc) or structured (PDF, etc) data
    • Any source code review performed: soren working actively on it
  4. Quality assurance:

    • In what situations does the package not work out of the box without configuration:
      • it requires a local or remote libvirt to work. It provides a sensible error message if someone has not installed it.
    • Does the package ask any debconf questions higher than priority 'medium': no
    • Debian bugs: No critical bugs

    • Maintenance in Debian is vigorous

    • Upstream is vigorous

    • Upstream bug tracker: No critical issues

    • Hardware: No special hw requirement directly from it
    • Is there a test suite in the upstream source or packaging ? Is it enabled to run in the build ?
  5. Standards compliance:

  6. Dependencies:

  7. Background information:

    • The general purpose and context: very clear
