Subject: [CentOS-virt] Upstream libvirt releases for Virt-SIG

Hi all,

I talked to our oVirt developers who use CentOS for upstream development.
And that's what makes their lives hard because it takes a long time before
they can start using new features of libvirt. The latest released CentOS
version is 7.2 with libvirt 1.2.17, which is pretty old. But even when
CentOS 7.3 with libvirt 2.0.0 gets released, it will already be old since
libvirt 2.5.0 is just about to be released upstream.

So to help them, I'd like to start building upstream releases of libvirt for
Virt-SIG. As one of the core libvirt developers and a maintainer of libvirt
in RHEL I think I should be qualified enough to do so :-) The goal is to
take every upstream release of libvirt soon after it's been released and
rebase the current CentOS package on top of it.

If it sounds good to you, what should I do to get started?
