Have you got some free time and do you want to get involved in oVirt project?

Do you like the idea of having fresh disk images of recent distribution in oVirt Glance repository?
You can help us by testing existing online images ensuring they works with cloud-init
or creating one yourself and report your success to devel@ovirt.org.
We'll be happy to upload the images once these are ready.

Do you like Debian and do you have some programming or packaging skills?
Help us getting Vdsm running on it! We work on inclusion of Vdsm into Debian.
We need to test and fix Vdsm Debian packages to make them working before the next Debian freeze.
You can find all current Debian work (Vdsm and related packages) in Debian git repositories [10].
You can follow the progress and participate on oVirt development mailing list [11].
