[Xen-devel] Xen 4.3 - Getting Release Docs into a good state

Hi all,

as we are close to the Xen 4.3 release, it's time to bring the release documentation into a good state. The next document day is next Monday the 24th. This would be a great opportunity to fix the documentation. But before would be good.

What needs fixing is
1) http://wiki.xen.org/wiki/Xen_4.3_Feature_List for correctness as well as explaining features by a short paragraph that makes sense to users (not just the people who have developed it)
For both of these it may be worth trawling through the Test Day instructions

Stuff which anybody can do
3) http://wiki.xen.org/wiki/Xen_4.3_Man_Pages - need to add any new documents that have been created since 4.2

I will update http://wiki.xen.org/wiki/Xen_4.3_Acknowledgements on Monday (after we branched, assuming we do)

@George, as you have been the release coordinator, do you want to announce Xen 4.3 on the blog? Let me know.

After the release, we should have a series of articles on the blog explaining how to use some of the new features. Stuff which comes to mind is:
1) New toolstack features : Open vSwitch & multiple USB devices
2) QEMU upstream : why, how, when to use upstream vs. not upstream
3) vTPM: an introduction (that requires a specialist)
4) XSM/FLASK: an introduction (that requires a specialist, I am also still waiting for Steve to upload his docs onto the wiki)
5) NUMA affinity : how and when (we did quite a bit on this on Xen 4.2, but I believe there may be a final missing gap in what we have)
6) Getting started with Xen on ARM (maybe on the Arndale)
I am looking for volunteers who could do these.

Best Regards
