Sure, it would be great if ust were in more linux distributions. I
believe what we can do for now is to spread the word (like you are doing
with the qemu/kvm community) and be patient.
It might put off some people that ust is not packaged, but we need early
adopters who are willing to compile software themselves to put pressure
on the community. This appears to be a necessary phase before
distributions invest time and money to create and maintain packages.
Any ideas to encourage further the distributions to package ust would be
welcome of course.
