When running the following in ubuntu 15.04;

 virt-install -n dummy -r 512 --vcpus=1 --os-type=linux
--os-variant=rhel7 -w bridge:virbr0 --disk
path=/var/lib/libvirt/images/dummy.qcow2,size=8 -l
http://pubmirrors.dal.corespace.com/centos/7/isos/x86_64/ --dry-run

I am given "ERROR global name 'fetcher' is not defined." 

Enabling debug shows ( snipped output )

My python-fu is quite weak and I can't figure this out. I was able to
> python setup.py test_urls

Some URLs Errored, 1 failed, many passed.

The packages associated for ubuntu 15.04 are;

ii  virt-manager         1:1.0.1-5ubuntu all             desktop application for managing virtual mach
ii  virtinst             1:1.0.1-5ubuntu all  

If this is solely a ubuntu issue, I apologize for not researching further. I did not see a bug matching this issue on bugzilla
and didnt want to report it without asking around.

Sorry - just noticed on your site that this might be fixed with virt-manager 1.2?
