0.12 felt a bit rushed to me.  I'd like to take a bit more time with
0.13 and try to complete features a bit more than we did in 0.12.  So I
propose that we target 0.13 as a 6-month cycle and target a June 1st
release.  Based on the -rc process for 0.12, I would like to have a two
week -rc cycle for 0.13 but this time, absolutely no non-bug fixes past
freeze.  We got sloppy in 0.12 with this and we had some ugly
regressions in the final release.

Here are the features that I'm aware of for 0.13.  Please add anything
you're working on and I'll try to centralize this somewhere.

  - gPXE support for virtio-blk
  - Helper based network setup
  - Balloon driver statistics
  - Fully supported QMP
  - Live migration protocol support for subvendor versions (aka features)
pci compliance (virtio passing whql)

What's the remaining problem?

vepa networking

To me, this is covered with helpers. I really want to get qemu out of the network setup business specifically because of things like vepa, vmtag, and all of the other weird things that can be done.

kvm irqchip

Yup, that and guest SMP support.
