Re: [Xen-devel] Xen 2.0.8 with 2.6.12 support?

We have a few more fixes we need to get tested, but after that we'll
hopefully release a 2.0.8. 

The major delay right now is that most people are working on trying
to get 3.0.0 out the door which doesn't leave a lot of time for 2.x! 

It's good to get reports like your which demonstrate that things 
seem to work well.

Most effort is going to xen 3.0 ; in addition, we're moving towards
a model where the linux parts of xen (i.e. the bits currently in the 
"sparse trees") will be pushed upstream. A lot of people are working
on this (see e.g. the xen-merge mailing list, or the mercurial 
repository at http://xenbits.xensource.com/linux-2.6-xen.hg) 

However it is unlikely that this same work will support xen 2.x, 
at least initially.
