Any plan to package Sheepdog?
short answer : yes
The sheepdog upstream repo needs one more man page which is sitting
around on my harddisk in incomplete state. Once that is done, sheepdog
needs a new upstream release with the current set of software. Once
that is complete the userland component will be packaged, and the qemu
portion is already available in rawhide.
Hopeful can find a package reviewer once this is complete - the package
is very simple, two binaries two man pages and an init script. If you
are interested in reviewing the package, ping me offlist.
Not sure how far we will get on libvirt integration in F15 - which is
why this technology will be "tech preview" and may require manual
launching of vms.

It is true that sheepdog is not generically useful outside of block
storage and specifically QEMU enabled systems (and perhaps XEN).
However in the Fedora performance case, I expect sheepdog with its lower
memory copy operation count and tight integration with QEMU to produce
better performance results and lower cpu utilization, resulting in
higher density of VMs on equivalent hardware. There is only one way to
validate this speculation - integrate the various solutions into Fedora
and see which has the best mix of real-world attributes.
