Hey virty-container-wizards,

I wanted to continue dialogue around virtio-fs support for Kata.  We are still hoping to get this into 1.7.  I wanted to see if there were any updates, and make sure the tasks/gaps are well understood, as we are hoping to have features in for 1.7 by *EOW next week*.

See the following project for tracking this work: https://github.com/orgs/kata-containers/projects/16

  1.  NEMU support for virtio-fs: see https://github.com/kata-containers/packaging/issues/401
     *   AFAIU, 4.0 rebase is completed (nice work ya’l!), and we have an initial hypervisor binary available for basic testing
     *   Have we gone through and done metrics run off of this?
     *   How are we packaging NEMU today (at the very least should be part of static now)?

  1.  Virtio-fs design docs: https://github.com/kata-containers/documentation/issues/419
     *   Who owns this? Can folks from RedHat help here?  @Stefan?

  1.  Kernel:
     *   We are still working to migrate to 5.0.  This is ongoing for a while and I’m afraid it’s one of the bigger risks at this point for 1.7 release.  Once config fragments, [1],  and the bump, [2] are merged, who is owning addition of virtio-fs patches, [3]?
     *   Ganesh: I assume you are working through the kernel upgrade and will do the addition of the virtio-fs kernel patches (can we put your name on the issue)? I believe there were some test gaps indentified between snaps and fragments. Can you please call them out here so we can get this fixed with higher priority/haste?

  1.  Testing:  see https://github.com/kata-containers/ci/issues/137
     *   Who is an appropriate owner here?

Happy to volun-tell people if necessary for some of the open issues in the GitHub project ☺
