Description of task
QEmu is a popular CPU emulator.
It is available in the FreeBSD ports collection under emulators/qemu. It can be used as a virtualization platform to emulate other processors/systems running on FreeBSD as a host. The FreeBSD handbook already has a chapter on virtualization, however, QEmu is not covered there yet. The purpose of this task is to create a section within this chapter describing QEmu and how it can be set up as a host on FreeBSD. The following wiki page can be used as a source of information: http://wiki.freebsd.org/qemu Although care must be taken as some information is likely outdated and needs to be tested on recent versions of FreeBSD. The added information in the handbook page needs to conform to FreeBSD's documentation formatting and style guidelines described in the FreeBSD documentation primer: http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/fdp-primer/
A FreeBSD system (in a VirtualBox Virtual Machine) installed on your computer.
Knowledge of the documentation guidelines for the FreeBSD project: http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/fdp-primer/
Check out a copy of the documentation tree from the documentation repository to get the source code for the chapter
Knowledge about QEmu would be helpful, but is not required to work on this task.

I would like to work on this task.
This task has been assigned to Reid Anderson. You have 120 hours to complete this task, good luck!
The work on this task is ready to be reviewed.
Your work looks pretty good. There are two small issues:
- Lines should be wrapped around column 76 (some of your lines are much longer than that), and
- Some indentation is wrong. Follow-on lines should be indented two spaces more than the line before it folllows.
However, those are minor issues, which I can easily fix up myself before committing. As a result, I'm happy to mark this task as being complete.
Thanks for your great work!
Congratulations, this task has been completed successfully.
Quick note for when I commit this: this is a patch against doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/virtualization/chapter.sgml
