Name        : libguestfs
Product     : Fedora 21
Version     : 1.28.7
Release     : 2.fc21
URL         : http://libguestfs.org/
Summary     : Access and modify virtual machine disk images
Description :
Libguestfs is a library for accessing and modifying virtual machine
disk images.  http://libguestfs.org

It can be used to make batch configuration changes to guests, get
disk used/free statistics (virt-df), migrate between hypervisors
(virt-p2v, virt-v2v), perform backups and guest clones, change
registry/UUID/hostname info, build guests from scratch (virt-builder)
and much more.

Libguestfs uses Linux kernel and qemu code, and can access any type of
guest filesystem that Linux and qemu can, including but not limited
to: ext2/3/4, btrfs, FAT and NTFS, LVM, many different disk partition
schemes, qcow, qcow2, vmdk.

Libguestfs for Fedora is split into several subpackages.  The basic
subpackages are:

               libguestfs  C library
         libguestfs-tools  virt-* tools, guestfish and guestmount (FUSE)
       libguestfs-tools-c  only the subset of virt tools written in C
                             (for reduced dependencies)
