Description Daniel Berrangé 2012-12-04 16:52:08 UTC
Description of problem:
Upstream, the intent is to merge the python-virtinst codebase into virt-manager, and cease distributing a separate python-virtinst package. The reason for this is to allow us freedom to refactor virt-manager & virt-install without need to maintain API compatibility.

Given this is imminent upstream, it is seriously undesirable to ship & support the separate virtinst/virt-manager packages in RHEL-7 for the next 10 years. This would mean we were effectively shipping a codebase which is unmaintained upstream.

Comment 1 Dave Allan 2012-12-06 16:48:14 UTC
Dan, what's the status of this work upstream?

Comment 2 Martin Kletzander 2013-06-03 12:43:16 UTC
The code was merged upstream, we're working on polishing details before moving to POST.

Comment 3 Martin Kletzander 2013-07-09 06:33:28 UTC
The merge was finished upstream and picked up in virt-manager-0.10.0.

So the code of python-virtinst has been included in virt-manager,move the bug to VERIFIED.
