Unfortunately I did not have enough time and in some cases the knowledge to
fix and/or improve some things to try to ensure a good integration, use of
the main new qemu features, and exemptions from criticism regressions with
xen before of the new qemu stable versions release.
An important first step, perhaps the most important would be to keep the
tested with qemu upstream xen during the development of each version (
http://git.qemu.org/?p=qemu.git;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/master) in
order to immediately
identify any regression with xen and resolve as soon as possible or at
least report
it on qemu-devel.
I gave a quick look at the git osstest to eventually try to use it on a
test server and run necessary automated tests for the nights but I did not
understand enough and I have almost no knowledge of perl, and perhaps even
more my very bad english...

I presume you've checked out osstest related posts on blog.xen.org.
Given your requirement you might want to use it in "production" mode
which automatically runs testcases and do bisection. I don't think it's
very easy to setup, you might want to speak to Ian Campbell or Ian
Adding a new branch flight is a bit harder to do without access to the
infra. You can see my libvirt patch for an example of the sort of thing
which is needed.

I can't speak for IanJ but I'm pretty busy with various things,
including the libvirt flight for osstest. I can probably look into doing
seabios at some point though.

There is a method to easy and fast have working dns/dhcp/tftp enough to

DNS/DHCP/TFTP are generanl IT infrastructure, not part of OSSTest. But I
admit it's never easy to maintain them...
At home i use dnsmasq which is pretty simple and provides at least the
first two (DNS+DHCP) I think it can do TFTP too but I tend to us the
regular tftpd on a difference host for various tedious reasons...


Thanks for your reply.
Trying to test myself if what I want try when I'll have some time.
For controller domU o phisical pc with debian 7 and dnsmasq and tftp from official package can be working and good? About server for dom0 testing I can't at home beacause I have the computer in the room where I sleep, I can on office but probably there is a problem of other dhcp and dns server of samba 4 pdc on the only and same network. For osstest should be not have other dns and dhcp server (or probably only dhcp) on the same network, right?

Thanks for any reply and sorry for my bad english.
