I hope you enjoyed it. This whole virtual virtualization conference
thing is quite a trip :-)

I think all the talks are available for the next month or two if anyone
is interested. Just go to:

We have some feature pages in the works here:


but we haven't really got around yet to thinking seriously about what
virt features we want to promote in F-13

There's no-one working on this yet, but you're right - it's definitely
an important piece of integration work we need to do.

I don't think we'd promote SPICE as a Fedora feature until we get
virt-manager support. Help is very welcome, of course! :-)

One of the more immediate concerns about SPICE is how to get it into
Fedora's version of qemu. The version posted to http://spice-space.org
is an old KVM snapshot, so we'll at least need to wait until the SPICE
developers re-base the patches to a newer version of qemu. We'll also
need to see how quickly it makes progress upstream.

I'm pretty sure it's on their roadmap, but you're probably best to just
ask on spice-space-devel:
