Ah, I was misleaded by the commits taking place in the team's Git repo
on the master branch.

FYI, I've asked to join the team (alioth project) too (as obergix at d.o),
to be able to help a bit. I'm not sure I can commit much to maintenance,
but I'll try to perform tests on my own configuration, at least.

Again, I think it is wise to discuss on the list about ideas, projects,
and even foolish dreams, than to act alone in the dark, but there may be
other ways to do team maintenance (I kinda live by the adage "If it
didn't happen on-list, it didn't happen." for collaborative work, but

About my own interest here: I have a single node Open Nebula "cloud"
running a few kvm guests, on wheezy, and I'm thinking about upgrading
(both host, if possible, and guests), but would prefer to be able to
test on another machine with copies of the VMs, hence my need for
something working on a recent machine I intend to use for these tests.

So I don't need an extremely recent One, but a 3.4 on jessie (+testing)
would certainly help, for testing guests, at a first time.

Hope this helps.
