Call for Testing: KVM in Jaunty-Proposed

So the backport of KVM-84 to Hardy and Intrepid has been in the works since March, and we're now rounding 3rd base.

I've produced a couple of release candidates and fixed a few remaining issues. Thank you to everyone who has tested these packages and provided feedback.

The final step before releasing the backport is to ensure that these latest changes get uploaded to jaunty-updates, such that the package is in sync among Hardy, Intrepid, and Jaunty.

One more call for testing...

So I've been working hard on this, and I'm at a point where I require assistance from the community. I get emails on a weekly basis from people asking for advice on getting involved in Ubuntu. Here's your shot ;-)

There is a package in jaunty-proposed that needs to be pushed to jaunty-updates before the Hardy and Intrepid backports can take place. In order to promote the package to jaunty-updates, I need users to verify that the new package fixes the four bugs that I think it fixes, and does not cause regressions.

Please, if you have a system running Jaunty + KVM, give the -proposed package a shot, and provide feedback in the following 4 bugs:

  1. I definitely do not get any windows VM to boot, if anyone manages that...
