Re: [Publicity] Draft blog post on the ARINC653 scheduler

Hey Nate!

Sorry for coming back to this a bit late... So, first of all, what would
you think about trying to publish this ~ Wed next week?

Ok. I'm not an expert either, but I'll take a look...

Saw it, and it sounds a lot better now. Thanks.

Right. Well, I didn't even know that Xen has ever run on PPC! ;-P
Hopefully, with the ARM port, things are probably pretty much equal
(although, yes, I know that in embedded both PPC and x86_32 have their
share, and we're not there :-( ).

Well, sure, I agree... I said it myself, at some point, that this is
something we really should avoid.

Ok, I think I'm fine with the current version of the post. Let's see if
anyone else has any other comments and, if not, how they like publishing
next week. :-)

Thanks a lot again for doing this,
