virtio-serial in OpenStack

a project by e_bischoff

Currently, the usual way to communicate with VM instances in the cloud from outside is ssh. This is okay for most uses, but a) does not work when you mess up with the guest's ability to network and b) requires a free floating IP. I wonder if, for qemu/kvm instances, it would be possible to use virtio-serial possibilities : from the guest, it is seen as a serial port, and from the outside, it is seen as a UNIX socket, or as something else. It is fast, as it does not go through virtualization and device drivers.

write mkcloudcloud - a nested cloud setup software

a project by bmwiedemann

In https://github.com/SUSE-Cloud/automation/ we already have mkcloud, which can setup a whole SUSE Cloud on a single host for testing. However, it would be cool, if (instead of a single machine) we could use cloud.suse.de with its capability to add extra networks as requested. This can be pretty easy, as much of the mkcloud code is about making libvirt do the right thing
