Hi Haijiao,

Thanks, I've left my comments on the PRs you've shared. All of them are targeted to master,
and the PR authors may be busy and/or may choose to not send it for 4.9 branch. If they don't
make into 4.9 branch, but end up in master -- they all will be in 4.10.x.

Hi Rohit

Thanks for your hardworking like Santa Claus  !

Is that possible to include the PRs below in 4.9.2 LTS as well  ?

#977      VM Snapshotting implementation for KVM (lots of people awaiting for this)
#1794    added more guest os (a simple to one to support latest OS)
#1849    Scale CentOS7 VM fails with error

Hi Wido,

The XS7 patch [1] is not big, if you've a look no major changes were made into CloudStack
other than some version related checked removed for XS 6.4+. Regression tests confirm that
XS6 works as expected, along with vmware and kvm. Technically it's a feature, but with LTS
releases we may end up backporting changes to support LTS users.

I'm aiming to cut RC-1 on/before 1st Jan which is more realistic than tomorrow. It would be
great to have ipv6, strongswan and other PRs if they are tested/merged before 4.10/master
freeze date.

another minor release that bundles few bugfixes and support for XenServer7.

How big is the XS7 support patch? Technically, isn't that a feature?

I know very little about XS7 and I wouldn't be against. But when you talk about a Holiday
present means you want to release it at least tomorrow? But you also say Jan 1st?

no objections, I'm pushing the freeze date for 4.10/master to 30th January? I would also like
to invite anyone who wants to take over as RM for the release, thanks.

No objections against that.

> Master will be open to accept bugfixes and PRs that can be reviewed/merged. There are
several good PRs we can review/merge such as Wido's PR on ipv6 support for basic zone/network,
and Jayapal's/Will's Strongswan VPN. I would be willing to accept PRs that don't break any
smoke tests on xen/vmware/kvm (as covered by Travis, Trillian, BVT and others) and growing
list of component tests that have been added in Travis and some of which we've started running
in Trillian.

I would really like #1700 and my additional Ipv6 stuff to be merged in to 4.10 :)
