At the moment we're not sure about posting the dial-in info publicly;
so until we get that sorted out we'll have to have a list of people
who may want to join, and send the dial-in info to them.

Shall I put you on the list? :-)

Yes; actually, I think the version I would really *like* to use is
libvirt 1.2.3, which will have live migration support.  But Ubuntu
14.04, which is an LTS (I believe), is using 1.2.2; so in the balance
between "being the only one on 1.2.3" and "backporting the migration
to 1.2.2", the second it probably preferrable, if possible.
