Hi Richard, thanks for showing interest in fixing these issues.

I skimmed through the list of bugs. Most of the default choice and
wording nits are certainly valid, and I'm sure most apply upstream,
so I'd be glad to take them. Some of the others are already fixed
upstream (virDomainDetachDevice error, adding virtio disks post
install, shutdown -> force poweroff).

In general, for non-critical bugs or feature suggestions, I would
suggest filing them with us upstream, under the 'Virtualization'
component in bugzilla.redhat.com. Ubuntu doesn't deviate much from
upstream for these tools so any issues they have are probably
relevant here. That way things are centralized for the upstream
developers as well == more attention to the report.

Thanks,
Cole
