Good. I'm sending it there :)

Looking forward to have it.

Indeed. The SDK made it incredible simple. Not sure if we have it, but
I did not see the ".vv" file download with SDK. It could make console
access even easier. I will look deeper into this and, if not a
feature, request/discuss it in bugzilla.
I would not necessarily throw it away, but I'm completely for moving such a
project to the oVirt umbrella. We could even have an image for thin clients
that boots into this sort of application.
I'm using Pidora and currently the only missing package is
virt-manager, so I'm using spicy (spice-gtk-tools). With some commands
we can make Pidora boot into the userportal-gtk. Also, there is the
RPi Thin Client Project - "RPi TC" (http://rpitc.blogspot.com.br/
that delivers the image with various VDI clients and it does includes
a virt-manager build. So I think we can have both... a Pidora custom
image booting into userportal-gtk and the client itself included in
Thank you guys for the support.
