I think it is a bad idea to push major new versions of anything to  a
distro that is about to go end of life. We've only just released these
new libvirt, virt-manager & virtinst packages. We *will* cause regressions
in functionality in F8, and with it about to go end of life, we'll be 
unable to push further updates to fix the regressions.

If someone really badly wants new libvirt/virt-manager for F8, then they
can easily just take the new RPMs from F9/10 and do a rpmbuild --rebuild
on the src. This avoids causing regressions for anyone else on F8 who
don't care.
