It is great to hear that someone still has interest in developing
and working on the Hyper-V driver for libvirt !

I appreciate that your finishing your assignment shortly, but could I
perhaps ask you or a co-worker at Bull to create a short patch series
out of your changes and submit it for review with 'git send-email' ?

I would love to see the code improvements you've done included in libvirt
but we can't effectively review them when they are just provided as a
complete new source file, instead of as a patch series.

Regards,
Daniel
