Tomasz Baranski and Yuval Turgeman joined the SIG for oVirt project.
Releases and Packages
oVirt 4.2 reached end of life with the upstream release of oVirt 4.3. Upstream is planning 4.3.1 to be shipped live on February 26th, the SIG will rebase on that.
On Xen side, Xen 4.8 has been updated to 4.8.5-1
Health and Activity
The Virtualization SIG remains fairly healthy. All the projects within the SIG are updating regularly on biweekly meetings.
oVirt had a conference in Milan on November 16th 2018 and is planning a new conference in Rome this spring.
oVirt was also present at Devconf.cz and Fosdem.
Xen 4.10.2 is also available, and the dom0-enabled Linux kernel is at 4.9.127. Release candidate builds of Xen 4.12 are also available.
Issues for the Board
oVirt pushed a patch for having a CentOS appliance including oVirt Guest Agent in https://github.com/CentOS/sig-cloud-instance-build/pull/127
We’ve updated centos-release-xen to default to Xen 4.8 in the CBS repos; but the centos-releas-xen version in centos-extras still points to Xen 4.6 (which is long out of service now).
