It's dead Jim.

we need two things.  First is a production method of generating xen 
kernels from the standard released kernels.  I think probably suffice to 
take a source deb of the kernel, add the appropriate patches and turn on 
reasonable defaults and generate a new source .deb for a dom) and domU 

then we would need a .deb for xen-tools which would be all of the 
surrounding components for xen management.

Since I don't have enough knowledge about .deb files, I have no idea how 
hard this is.

if folks want to try and solve this problem, I would be glad to 
contribute what knowledge I have about xen and find some shortcomings.  ;-)

I would suggest discussing this activity on a transient mailing list 
(quicktopics.com which is run by a friend of mine comes to mind) so we 
wouldn't annoy the people here.

are we ready to move forward?
