virtualization-kit (virt-kit)

Recommended Posts

Wouldn't it be nice to have all the virtualization/emulation software in one kit instead it being all over the place?
It would make testing and deploying virtualization technologies much easier.
Most of the virtualization software is in nokit. LXC and LXD are in core-kit.
Some libvirt python bindings are in python-kit, and virtualbox guest additions are in xorg-kit.

virtualzation pkgs:
app-emulation/libvirt::nokit
app-emulation/qemu::nokit
app-emulation/lxc::core-kit
app-emulation/lxd::core-kit
app-emulation/virtualbox::nokit
app-emulation/virtualbox-bin::nokit
app-emulation/xen::nokit

virtualization tools:
app-emulation/virt-manager::nokit
app-emulation/virt-viewer::nokit
app-emulation/virtio-win::nokit
app-emulation/virtualbox-guest-additions::xorg-kit
app-emulation/open-vm-tools::nokit
dev-python/libvirt-python::python-kit

cloud related virtualization software:
app-emulation/docker::nokit
app-emulation/cloud-init::nokit
app-emulation/containerd::nokit

hard emulators:
app-emulation/bochs::nokit
app-emulation/armv8-fast-model::nokit
app-emulation/edumips64::nokit
app-emulation/vmips::nokit

I'm sure I forgot many packages, the open-vz kernel sources, probably more emulators, and more stuff related to docker,
but this is just an idea how to consolidate the virtualization packages into one kit.
