Description of problem:
add this argument to make the connection more controllable
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
virConnectOpenAuth(const char *name,
unsigned int flags,
unsigned long timeout)
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.
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.
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...
