Has anyone discussed with the upstream QEMU developers about doing a
new release. I've seen no such discussions on the public qemu-devel
list. If QEMU guys are planning a new release soon, then we'd have
no need for a CVS snapshot, or at least confidence that QEMU guys
consider it geting stable enough that a release is viable. If the
QEMU devs don't consider a new release viable I'd like to know why
they think this, *before* we subject Fedora users to a CVS snapshot.
