To all:

Currently foreman allows to create foreman hosts in top of ovirt (you can use compute resources in foreman to do that), and from the ovirt side it allows you to add a new host taken from wither an existing foreman host, or to bare metal provision one. In the future we plan to allow adding vms through ovirt that will also be also added automatically to foreman, which will allow to assign this VM to some host group in foreman, which then will install different packaged, and set up stuff according to the host group definition.
