Re: [MirageOS-devel] Mirage OS releases and XenProject.org


Thanks for the changes.  I will look into it, although it may be Monday before 
it happens.  At SCALE 12X right now and the Internet is pretty flaky.

My inclination is to stick with 1.x.x.  It makes the most sense for now (e.g. 
the getting started instructions would be different and it's unhelpful to users 
to maintain both).

Since I don't have edit access [1], Russell, Lars, are you able to make the 
following changes the text on the following page:

Title: Mirage 1.x.x  (URL can stay as it is)

MirageOS v1.0 consists of a set of libraries -> MirageOS v1.x.x consists of a 
set of libraries

look at the [Mirage Introduction] on -> look at the [Mirage Docs][2] on

and what the libraries enable you to do. -> and what the libraries enable you 
to do. You should also read the announcement post for the [original 1.0 
release][3], which provides useful background.

[1] I asked before but apparently the downloads part of the CMS is awkward so I 
can't do this myself (c.f email from Lars on 5 Dec @ 2230-ish)

[2] link should be http://openmirage.org/docs/

[3] link should be http://openmirage.org/blog/announcing-mirage10

I hope that all makes sense.
