another informative Fedora virtualization status report.
 
For those who live life beyond the bleeding edge, Mark points out
 
"F12 tracker bugs have been created.<ref>http://fedoraproject.org/w/index.php?title=Virtualization_bugs</ref>
 
The F12 blocker and target bugs depend on the F11 counterparts. The
 
idea is that if we don't fix a bug in F11, it's automatically on the
 
F12 tracker but we still have a list of bugs worth fixing in a post-GA
 
F11 update."

described<ref>http://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-virt/2009-May/msg00017.html</ref>
 
some "personal hackery" created to solve the same problems as {{package|libguestfs}}
 
(FWN#174<ref>http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FWN/Issue174#New_Release_libguestfs_1.0.15</ref>),
 
but by way of a different toolchain. Charles wanted to build <code>libguestfs</code> on his platform
 
but uncovered many bugs and asked, "is my goal reasonable, or am I better off sticking with my in-house solution for the time being?"
 
 
 
[[RichardJones|Richard Jones]] addressed several of the bugs and
 
posted<ref>http://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-virt/2009-May/msg00029.html</ref>
 
his "notes on building libguestfs and dependencies on RHEL 5 and derived distributions" followed with a blow by blow account of hammering <code>libguestfs</code> and its dependencies into submission. Finally, Richard announced<ref>http://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-virt/2009-May/msg00045.html</ref> RPMs for RHEL/CentOS 5.3.
 
 
 
Charles thanked<ref>http://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-virt/2009-May/msg00047.html</ref> him
 
"kindly for going above and beyond on this one!".
