While we're thinking about Fedora, I just filed:
as a request to get qemu-guest-agent installed by default into live
images. Although it's a long shot, I even gave rationale for why it
might violate blocker requirements (but it might still be accepted as a
nice-to-have improvement even though we are past beta).
Also, I found it rather inconvenient to get guest agent support enabled
into my guest; I ended up manually using 'virsh edit' to add:
<target type='virtio' name='org.qemu.guest_agent.0'/>
Libvirt really needs a mode to just auto-allocate a host socket path,
otherwise apps would have to hardcode /var/lib/libvirt, which can be different
depending on how ./configure was run. And hardcoding gets extra hairy if you
with GUEST made appropriately unique per guest, and think it would
nice if virt-manager could make guest-agent support easier to turn on
with a single checkbox.
I want to have virt-manager just add this bit for all new virtio supporting
guests. And add some UI niceness for adding known channels like qemu agent.
