I have been tasked with assisting in the improvement of libvirt documentation where possible and co-ordinating the development of the libvirt Application Development Guide. The guide was previously in the hands of Dani Coulson, who has since left Red Hat.

I will chase up with the people who were originally nominated as the responsible parties to try and get some content to flesh out the guide.
