Hi Andreea,
	Really appreciate to have a process to propose new project to rust-vmm:) One question about the relationship between firecracker and rust-vmm. Say I have some proposal to extend the memory_model crate in firecracker, what’s the preferred process for it?

The proposal would be to first create a repository on a personal GitHub profile and open a new issue in the community repository [2] asking for review for the crate. Would that be okay? I can do that for the virtio-bindings crate.

I also noticed that there are a lot of crates on crates.io <http://crates.io/> that over FFI bindings and are named with the "-bindings" suffix. Because you cannot rename crates on crates.io <http://crates.io/>, I was thinking about creating a new crate with the same content, name it kvm-bindings and mark the kvm_wrapper as an obsolete crate. We can keep the kvm_wrapper repository around and at some point re-purpose it to be a wrapper over KVM ioctls (similar to the kvm crate from crosvm/firecracker, but a bit more generic maybe?).
