Existing packages

You can get the list of existing packages here https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/?K=ovirt&SB=p

Engine

There is a package for the git version. Testing would be needed to verify its correctness. Missing: Packaging for stable releases.

VDSM

Packaging

There is an ongoing effort of packaging vdsm and all of its dependencies (which are not already on AUR). There, on the vdsm pkgbuild you can find an updated list of the dependencies that are known, present in AUR and also those yet to be packaged.

One of the challenges is the fact that vdsm is usually packaged into subpackages, which is supported by recent versions of makepkg and pacman, but it is unsupported by AUR. One possible solution would be for oVirt to host its own Arch repository for just the vdsm package and subpackages.

Missing code

It is needed to finish merging the iproute2 configurator so that networking becomes functional.
