we need to have oVirt available as part of distros or as a repo for
distros (fedora exists, i'm guessing ubuntu is next)
the other approach we mentioned was a live-cd approach, which will
indeed take time to plan and do (also need to decide if going for
live-cd or live-usb - usb is read/write which will probably be much
easier for our use case)
I'm planing to take both tasks and put the needed time into it:
-live cd on a usb stick - 1st priority and easier task
-packaging for debian/ubunto - the more complex one since lots of our
packaging code relays on fedora/rhel distros, i have seen some work was
started on the subject.
