Subject Re: About the development approach of KVM Agent on master
Date Tue, 13 Nov 2012 04:18:21 GMT
Yeah, that would be good. Currently I have a virtual machine on my desktop
that is a full blown cloudstack install.  Agent, mgt server,
primary/secondary storage. It works well for me, I can develop on it and
launch nested VMs with decent performance. It takes about two minutes to
build and package. Not the most efficient, but I do like being able to run
a real environment and develop against it.
