Thanks for the heads up.

A separate question. Are there any plans to continue doing feature 
development on the virt driver within nova? The last time an IBM team 
contributed any features to it was in Rocky [1]. Since then it's 
basically been in maintenance mode when the driver interface changes. 
It's not like it's really a drain on resources for the nova team but I'm 
also assuming no one uses the in-tree driver so its existence is solely 
to say there is a zVM driver in nova for marketing/sales purposes.
