qemu-kvm is the preferred hardware emulation platform in Ubuntu. The goal of this work is to follow and help test upstream development, collaborate on bug fixing with upstream, and ensure that kvm is stable and fullfills our needs.
In this cycle, we will focus on merging divergent source packages into one, and re-syncing our packaging as far as possible with Debian. This should result in increased testing for arm users, reduced duplication of effort between qemu-linaro and qemu-kvm sources, and increase collaboration with Debian.
