Package: autopkgtest
Severity: wishlist

Hello autopkgtest team members,
thanks for developing this really important test automation system!

I think that it would be useful to have a binary package to
set up a KVM-based virtualized environment for tests.
That is to say, something similar to autopkgtest-xenlvm,
but based on KVM in stead of Xen, if I understand correcly.

Would it be possible?

It seems to me that there's something for Ubuntu using KVM:
I don't know whether it may be re-adapted to Debian.

Oh, I see that there's some overlapping between your
team and the Ubuntu “Auto Package Testing Developers” team,
so I guess you were already aware of the Ubuntu package...

Anyway, please let me know what you think about my feature

Thanks for your time!
