While I accept that this is the current situation, I think we definitely
want to give people the impression on the website that this is not a Red
Hat only virtualisation manager - yes, there's work to be done to
integrate it on other distros, but we are more than happy to integrate
that work, and we plan on doing it ourselves for Ubuntu in the near
future. The message "we welcome people who want to run other distros as
oVirt nodes" is important.
Definitely -- I hope to see us make multi-distro a reality asap, and
it's important to make that goal clear -- and make clear that currently,
a goal is what it is.
