thanks for your interest. Could you elaborate what your thoughts related
to CentOS 7 and the CentOS virtualization SIG are? I am not sure I
exactly understand what you are proposing and it is also not quite clear
to me whether there is some overlap with other SIGs (such as the Cloud SIG).
I guess the key question I have is whether you are suggesting /
considering to use the output of the virtualization SIG as upstream for
OpenNode and would want to contribute to the SIG.
