+ * DOC: Introduction
+ *
+ * The header ``ui/clipboard.h`` declares the qemu clipboard interface.
+ *
+ * All qemu elements which want use the clipboard can register as
+ * clipboard peer.  Subsequently they can set the clipboard content
+ * and get notifications for clipboard updates.
+ *
+ * Typical users are user interfaces (gtk), remote access protocols
+ * (vnc) and devices talking to the guest (vdagent).
+ *
+ * Even though the design allows different data types only plain text
+ * is supported for now.
