[libvirt-users] libvirt-lxc: good for production?



Dear all,

I'm a happy lxc (lxd) user with a need to add a bunch of KVM images to the mix. More importantly I need to have some simple frontend to give users the ability to quickly run some VMs for testing.

Researching the topic brought me to virt-manager and from there libvirt. I've had however a hard time to answer a few questions that I hope this list can help me with:

1) is the libvirt-lxc driver actively developed? there's been a lot of upgrades to lxc and there seems to be relatively little activity on the lxc driver
2) is libvirt-lxc to be used in production to begin with? every single guide I found about libvirt pretty much points to KVM usage, with simple /bin/sh examples with lxc.  Furthermore stuff like virt-install seems to be exclusively catered to full os/KVM images creation, with no obvious way to create a container image.

thanks for any input, even just docs I missed that explain the avove would be most helpful.

Spike
