While we're in full bug-triaging mode for Aeolus [1], I've spent time on 
my own on improving Snap (the system snapshotter for Linux/Windows/Mac 
OSX which can be used to perform cross-cloud and cross-os migrations). 
Just figure I'd share some updates.

- incorporated full test harness
- many documentation improvements / fixes
- many code cleanups / optimizations
- starting adding ability to migrate snapshots between OS's (for example 
Ubuntu to Fedora and vice-versa)
- pushed snap into Fedora! (simply install via 'yum install snap' on 
Fedora15+ and RHEL6, should be pushed into Debian / Ubuntu soon)

See the commit log [2] for full details. Stay tuned for more updates!
