Re: [Xen-devel] linux-arm-xen branch, commit access, etc.


Ping? This is going to be very helpful for bringing up osstest on Thunder-X.

I think it would be better to keep aroundSome platform may be available before the code is merged.



let's create a /arm/linux.git tree on xenbits where both Julien and I
can push. The idea is that we'll try to use vanilla kernel releases but
we'll keep it around just in case we'll need special patches for
hardware support in the future. If it turns out that we don't actually
need it, we can get rid of it in a year or two.

We'll initialize /arm/linux.git based on the current linux-arm-xen
branch. /arm/linux.git will replace linux-arm-xen in OSSTest.

Sounds good?

I don't mind as long as I have access to the arm linux tree. Ian do you have any opinions?
