UDS Natty discussion

== KVM/Libvirt hypervisor work ==

actions:
 * re-syncing kvm with debian:
  * sponsor merge of qemu-kvm 0.13.0
  * offer that to debian for Experimental, work with them if possible+needed
 * Jamie to look into adding more tests into qa-regression-testing from https://wiki.ubuntu.com/VirtFeatureVerification
 * Serge to look at http://www.mail-archive.com/libvir-list@redhat.com/msg12703.html
 * Consider packaging libguestfs - likely in a ppa first
 * Follow up on ubuntu build recipes for kvm-autotest
 * Follow up on (Soren's) machine dedicated to kvm testing
   * Use for extensive kvm+libvirt testing?

Non-kvm qemu for arm-on-x86 testing was brought up, but it was felt that Qemu on Arm (i.e. emulating x86) was not worth doing.  As for qemu emulating arm on x86, upstream (Peter :) needs to do work to merge Nokia's qemu-omap tree into upstream, at which point we can package it.  It is hoped that can be done during the Natty cycle.  KVM on arm will become interesting in a few  years.  Xen was brought up.  We have DomU support, and kernel team only wants to support Dom0 if it gets pushed upstream.
