Hello all,

I have used QEMU to assist me developing embedded system for 3 years. And I
want to contribute to QEMU and participate Google Summer of Code this year.
I have port binutils so I have some experienced with binary format. I
noticed that there is no VHD support in qemu-img. A Virtual Hard Disk(VHD)
is a virtual hard disk file format used in Microsoft virtual PC, Hyper-V,
virtual box, xVM and Complete PC Backup  of vista and windows 7. I want to
add support for VHD in GSoC. I am wondering whether this kind of idea is
valuable to QEMU?? Or any another topic related image format is valuable to



Hello Mitnick,

QEMU (including qemu-img) already supports the format vpc.
The code in block/vpc.c also uses the name vhd, so I think
vpc == vhd.
