Hi, Jose!

Probably there should be a 'introduction to maas' or 'maas by example'
which would help new users to get started with new MAAS cluster in KVM
virtual machines - I'm assuming not a lot of newcomers have several
bare-metal boxes lying around just to play with MAAS.

There is a very good blog from Chris Arges that explains how one could
start with MAAS in KVM - it even explains how to connect juju to that MAAS:

The blog talks about OpenStack but it starts with creating VMs,
installing MAAS on one of them, configuring it, enlisting other VMs,
etc, etc...
