Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1007726
Remove RHEL-only support for RHEVM 'Pass Ctrl+Alt+Delete to virtual machine'
Last modified: 2014-10-14 02:29:52 EDT
virt-viewer has RHEL-only support for RHEVM CAD option.
It has been agreed to remove that option from RHEVM. See bug 996564, Remove 'Pass Ctrl+Alt+Delete to virtual machine' from Console Options.
Similarly, virt-viewer should drop this custom feature.
Whether, and how long, to support older RHEVM CAD option or not remains to be decided by PM.
Definitely not 6.5 material, the bug should probably be 6.5.0- 6.6.0?, but I prefer not to touch them as I'm not familiar enough with changing these flags ;)
Most of this support is in spice-gtk, so this bug will need to be cloned to track the removal there as well.

Yes, it's late in schedule, but it's already there (by mistake). If PM is fine with droping support in 6.5, this is basically already verified by bug 1007205.
devel ack, please pm ack (bug 996564 is pm_ack+ already)
