Re: [Xen-devel] Xen 4.5 development update (July update)

I've trimmed the CC list to just xen-devel and committers/maintainers
(mostly from the existing cc list, so not exhaustive).

I'm wondering if, with various maintainers and committers having been
away at various points over the summer (August in particular), we should
perhaps consider slipping the schedule a little bit.

I was away a fair bit myself and I still have a fairly large pile of
patches to wade through, many of which I consider important for 4.5[0].
I'm not sure how other maintainers feel about their respective areas.

One problem with a slip is that I'm also away (conference) next week, so
slipping by a week doesn't really help me all that much and slipping by
more may be unpalatable to some.

[0] toolstack side: Wei's state preservation stuff, er, I'm sure there's
ARM side: GICv3 support, Stefano's 1:1, Julien's passthrough stuff, the
second half of Ariana's iomem stuff, the EFI stub stuff, perhaps the
xenaccess stuff. And that's ignoring my own outstanding serieses
