Wow... Lots of materials here!

Just for clarity, these are intended for the Mirage blog, right? Or is
it the Xen-Project blog that you're targeting (also)?

If the former, well, personally, I think it would be great to have most
(if not all) of them in Xen's blog too. As Lars said, we often publish
stuff sort of multiple time to amplify the effect. However, if we're
worried that would mean too much information duplication, perhaps
someone could write a summary, for instance, of the various posts in the
'Homepage' category for the Xen's blog?

What I'm sure is that, from just looking at the titles, we _badly_ want
something about "Deployment on Amazon" on the Xen-Project blog! :-)

The same applies, without even the need to say it, to pretty much
everything in the "Xen and the art of /motorcycle/ VM Maintenence"
category (especially the first 3 topics) and in the "Lwt" category.
Whether a summary or just the post as they are/will be, it depends on
the posts themselves...

Anyway, that is all very cool, so, please, keep the Xen-Project blog in
mind when doing this and let us know (via this
publicity@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx ML) if there is any help you need in that
