Yay.  Really.  Yay.

It was previously discussed at the summit that xensource might be able
to host an initrd for the community.  Now that this functionality is
in xm-test, perhaps a URL could be posted to be used as a default for
the INITRD variable?

Yes, we will do this.  Dan, if you (or someone else at IBM) could provide a
'known good' initrd, then we'll host that, and I'll synchronise with you so
that the patch to refer to that initrd goes in only once the initrd is in

They will be placed into


Please make sure that xm-test will only fetch the initrd if it can't find one
locally, and will resume interrupted downloads rather than start again from
scratch.  This will hopefully avoid our machines melting under the load!
Hi Ewan, I'm still not seeing a xm-test.xensource.com. Did this ever get created?
