iam not taking it bad but when you are being told your boxes could be
shutdown without prior notice by the new managment, then yes you try
to move fast, which is what we did.
Not because thats a great thing to do but because it was needed

also iam not doing the work by choice but because noone else
volunteered, i would very much prefer if someone who actually has
experience with this kind of thing to do the work.
And that i could concentrate on FFmpeg work instead of admin work

i think you misunderstand, i do want to move to full virtualization
for security and for easier migration of services between servers
and had mentioned this previously

but as with everything in a volunteer project "want" alone does not
make things happen.

In that sense if someone wants to work on moving some of our services
to full virtualization like qemu/kvm or even just LXC, please mail
root for this to be discussed or if theres more of a general
discussion like LXC vs qemu/kvm then of course the public ffmpeg-devel
