    Autumn is coming and with it will come the next 3.6.0 release and will
start the next major release cycle.
Have you got some free time and do you want to get involved in oVirt

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 (like
https://getfedora.org/en/cloud/download/) ensuring they works with
or creating one yourself and report your success to devel at ovirt.org.
We'll be happy to upload the images once these are ready.

Do you like Debian and do you have some programming skill?
Help us getting VDSM running on it! We started releasing highly
experimental packages and it's a good time for giving them a try.
You can follow the progress here: http://www.ovirt.org/VDSM_on_Debian

Here are some bugs you can try to help with:
