osVDS has been happily replaced with Ganeti. I'm closing all osVSD related bugs.

I was able to :

- configure qemu to allow incoming SSH connections with -redir tcp:5555:

- create a SSH key without passphrase that will allow batch connections to the qemu machine

- connect to the qemu machine with: ssh -i .ssh/id_rsa -v -p 5555 root@localhost

- upload the image to download.gna.org (ETA 4:00)

Let's attack the backend!

Xen now works under Qemu.

The trick was to avoid using kqemu, the kernel based optimizer of Qemu, because it prevents Xen from working.

- configure Qemu to allow incoming SSH connections

- upload the final Qemu image to download.gna.org (1GB+)

- write a minimal backend that :
- get the specs of the domU from a XML file (use shell+xmlstarlet or python)
- create domU (use libvirt, virsh)
- destroy domU

- write tests that :
- downloads the Qemu image from Gna and cache it
- boots a copy of the Qemu machine
- create XML file
- creates a domU
- checks that the domU exists ("xm list")
- destroy the domU
- get 100% code coverage

- allow testing the backend with real servers. have a look at kexec to boost the process

- apt-get source pokerengine to see a real-life python test coverage (make check)
