Do you have links to the public availability of this hypervisor and any information about its user base? Can you also provide some information about why it makes sense to have openstack consume this obviously very complicated system that duplicates a lot of functionality? --dansmith

I second Dan's questions. But in general we are happy to support new virt drivers but we have a few requirements. A) You provide third party CI testing (https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/HypervisorSupportMatrix) B) The virt driver is maintained. --jogo

Sorry for updating the information. Now we're preparing the CI for this.
Here's some discussion in ML in earlier feburary:

If you are still working on this, please re-submit via nova-specs. If not, please mark as obsolete, and add a quick comment to describe why. --johnthetubaguy (20th April 2014)

Hi johnthetubaguy, it seems like this BP can't catch up with the Icehouse. Due to some reasons, the related CI environment can't be built in time. So should I need to change the state of it? --wingwj (21st April 2014)
