That doesn't mean we should stop working on this. We don't know if the
tool from AL13N will fit our needs. Or maybe there are other tools we
can use, or develop our own based or libvirt. We also need something to
generate the Mageia VMs with user key installed, maybe using draklive,
or using a base image where we add the key.

However this may take time, so we can start by installing VMs manually
for now until we have something better.
