Fedora 21 virt test day moved yet again, now Thursday September 25

Third times the charm! With the ongoing F21 alpha delay, I requested the virt test day to be pushed back yet again. Now it's on Thursday September 25th. Check out the landing page for more info on the test day:

Since I'm tired of making these announcements, even if F21 is delayed some more I won't be rescheduling the test day again, so September 25th is the super official date. :)

Speaking at Flock 2014

I'm in Prague for Fedora Flock 2014. I'll be giving a talk on Saturday at 11am titled 'Virtualization for Fedora Packagers and Developers'. The talk will explain some intermediate virt tips and tricks to simplify certain common Fedora developer tasks like testing packages across Fedora versions, reproducing reported bugs, and others.

If you see me at Flock, feel free to ask me anything virt related!
