Description of problem:
libguestfs in RHEL 7.3 (which was also rebased, bug 1218766) is
carrying 151 patches, and that will probably grow a bit.
libguestfs upstream maintains a very strong commitment to backwards
compatibility. We have never broken the C API, and (apart from
one notorious occasion with virt-inspector that happened a long
time ago) never break backwards compat for command line tools either.
Therefore it makes sense to rebase libguestfs in RHEL 7.3.
The particular aspect which concerns me are the large changes to
virt-v2v Windows Registry handling made upstream in libguestfs 1.34.
These will need thorough testing to ensure nothing regresses.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Hard to predict exactly, but perhaps 1.34 or 1.36.
I will make a yum repository of the packages available here:
The upstream 'rhel-7.4' branch contains the exploded patches:
The yum repository is now available:
