"Feature" is an interesting one.  For APIs (which are not really like
features) there is a page that covers this.  You'd be forgiven for not
finding it since it took me about 10 minutes to find it:


For features, the best you can do is probably look at the release notes:

Agreed.  Actually Justin was working on this documentation issue, but
he's now doing Aeolus stuff.  Patches are welcome of course.  If you
work out how to use those two APIs, you might as well update the virsh
and/or API documentation by sending a patch.

Going further, I think that patches that add new features but don't
add sufficient documentation and examples should be rejected.
