[virt-tools-list] Checking on plans for cloud-init

I was seeing activity on cloud-init for virtinst ending up in a
'cloudinit' branch that still is in the project . I know that this
was due to a GSOC  project and wanted to thank all of you for that.
But according to  I'd guess the project is over (as is summer :-) )
and after the activity on it from June  to August  I haven't
seen any since then.
I wanted to ask if there are further plans for this?
Is (has) anyone picking that up to complete and merge it at some point
or was it just a scientific/educational effort that will most likely
stay at this stage.
Ubuntu is heavy on cloud-init usage and I know people using
cloud-localds  to achieve something very similar. They are
converting a local cloud-init user data config file into an ISO and
then passing that e.g. to `virtinst --cdrom` (or others). That is why
I'm interested to learn if the feature has a chance to likely be
completed to be considered a full built-in alternative at some point.
