Great! Is there any timeframe when the developer's appliance will support
managing vms on localhost? This would bring down the testing barrier
*substantially* now that cobbler integration is mostly in place.

My goal is to be able to "apt-get install ovirt" in 1 or 2 ubuntu /
debian releases
from now to install the wui and bundled management server. So far freeipa has
a zillion deps that I'm slowly working out.
