Re: [Publicity] Blog for review: Xen4CentOS

We are planning to announce the Virt SIG soon. We just received the initial round of edits from the CentOS Project team on our news release and a Linux.com article.Â

Given this, I would suggest deleting the last paragraph that discusses the Virt SIG until the news is issued. Alternatively, we could publish this blog when our news release is issued, but I understand if the group doesn't want to wait on the news release approvals.Â

Estimated timing for the news release and Linux.com article would be in about a week and a half at a minimum. We still need Xen Project AB review/approval and one more review from CentOS.Â

Looks fine overall. Just two comments:

* "...the kernel which Red Hat decided didnât need to support the Xen Project Hypervisor."Â This may be interpreted as a bit petulant: I think for a technical post, we just want to stick to the facts.
Agreed. The phrasing made me feel that I didn't want to continue reading. all that is needed, is ".... ,which does not support the Xen Project Hypervisor"

* The Virt SIG seems like a bit of an afterthought: in the "What does the Future Hold" section, I would start with the development of the Virt SIG, and then mention our plans (updating every other Xen release, &c).
How about something like this:

The Xen4CentOS is not a one-time, cut-and-run hack. It is being transitioned into the newly formed CentOS Virtualization SIG. This CentOS SIG will focus on providing a specialized CentOS variant suitable for various virtualization technologies, including the Xen Project Hypervisor. The plan is to provide regular security and bug-fix updates as needed and to upgrade the Xen Project Hypervisor with every even major release (4.4, 4.6, etc) and to provide matching updates for QEMU, libvirt and other dependent packages.

So if you were thinking about trying Xen Project software on CentOS, there is now every reason to give it a try.

Sounds good to me.
