Server Bug Zapping: Libvirt

Jamie Strandboge and I spent today working on Ubuntu Lucid's libvirt package.

We did a bit of testing of the libvirt 0.7.7 merge that Jamie has in his PPA, and we spent several hours triaging all of Ubuntu's libvirt bugs.

We managed to reduce the number of open bugs from 78 to 41 with a thorough testing of Lucid's libvirt package against the open bugs, a bit of duplicate matching, and some expiration of a few others.

I uploaded one libvirt fix to an issue that can be solved with the new upstart job. If we decide to upload 0.7.7 to Lucid, there's a few others that will be closed too. And if not, we can cherry pick a few commits.

Finally, if you can give us some help, try installing Jamie's libvirt 0.7.7 merge in Lucid and let us know how well it works for you, and if there are any regressions. Cheers!
