Completely agreed on releasing more often: the huge lapse between the
previous two releases was no good. I think pushing new virtinst +
virt-manager in a couple weeks would be fine, there are still a couple
other things I'd like to pick off until then. Going forward, my goal is
to have an actual schedule, and transparency wrt planned features,
timelines, etc.
