libvirt Application Development Guide

The guide is both a learning tool for developing with libvirt and an API reference document. It is a work in progress, composed by a professional author from contributions written by members of the libvirt team.

Contributions to the guide are VERY welcome. If you'd like to get your name on this and demonstrate your virtualisation prowess, a solid contribution to the content here will do it. :)
