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?
