Description Jaroslav Suchanek 2017-07-18 10:22:48 UTC
Both RHEV and OpenStack will like to use new features and APIs provided by libvirt, which are impossible to deliver without rebasing libvirt (there are specific BZs for each of them).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

libvirt >= 3.0.0 (the exact version depends on rebase deadlines)
