Since RHEL 6.1 External Beta has begun, and this bug remains
unresolved, it has been rejected as it is not proposed as
exception or blocker.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if appropriate and relevant, in the
next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
As mentioned, this is already upstream, but probably warrants a rebase for 6.2

For clarification, does above statement mean virt-manager will be rebased for 6.2?
If yes, to which level?
Not official yet, but I'm almost positive virt-manager will be rebased in 6.2, probably to a version that hasn't been released yet.

Cole, thank you.
Is virt-manager-0.9.0-2.el6 downloadable from somewhere?

6.2 alpha contains virt-manager 0.9.0-6 which diplays the requested Qbg fields .. thank you
