[Libvirt-announce] Release of libvirt-1.2.13



  As planned I just made the release for libvirt-1.2.13, it's tagged in
git, and signed tarballs and rpms are available at the usual place:

   ftp://libvirt.org/libvirt/

I also pushed a 1.2.13 for libvirt-python but it's really for
completeness as it's virtuallyequivalent to 1.2.12.
