We couldn't add it to the existing API since libvirt doesn't break API. We would need to add some separate way to set a timeout.
Comment 2 Fl@sh 2015-10-21 10:58:33 EDT
I looked at the code and found that the addition of an argument will entail numerous changes. I hope that the addition of an option will not take long.
Comment 3 Cole Robinson 2015-10-21 12:17:49 EDT
it's actually more likely that this bug will just sit here indefinitely. filing an RFE doesn't give any guarantee that it will ever be implemented...
