Lxd - the container hypervisor

Registered by Serge Hallyn on 2014-11-07

The high level goals of this blueprint are:

1. to have a fully usable lxc/lxd experience
2. to be able to drive lxd containers through the command line and openstack
3. to be able to run systemd-based containers
4. to make user namespace-protected containers more useful
5. to go even beyond the security guarantees of user namespaces, with the help of hardware
6. implement container migration
