Fedora 23 Looks To Make It Easy To Test Cloud Images

Yet another feature being worked on for Fedora 23 is to make it easy to test cloud images locally from the Fedora Workstation/Server.

Currently this program only works on Fedora Linux and requires libvirt, libguestfs, and python-requests for supporting this local cloud testing. Testcloud makes it a one-step process for downloading, booting, and gaining access to a cloud image on your local system.

Testcloud is still in its early stages but you can learn more about this Python software via its GitHub project page. Here's the local test cloud change proposal for getting it into Fedora 23.
