If the KVM-84 binary RPMs already exist here...
...and have been in use for over a month, and nobody has found fault
with them then does that mean that the tasks "Package, test, push to
testers" are complete?
I think they should replace the KVM-36 RPMs in extras. However, if they
are not ready then please can they at least be put into the testing
repository so they can be tested more easily.

KVM will become available from upstream, but not until RHEL 5.4...
...when it looks like it will become the Next Big Thing. We can expect
to see increasing interest in KVM leading up to that release from both
CentOs and RH users, so making it available would make both groups grateful.
