[Xen-users] Re: [Xen-research] ISO test Downloads Availability ?

Stephen: Does the xm/xen test infrastructure exist at all anymore?
I haven't heard anything on it. Is it something that Citrix (or someone)
would be willing to host again for Xen.org? (if there is enough interest).

The xm-test stuff may just work and need to be dusted off or maybe it
is in active use now?

Actually... it looks like there are patches against it that are recent.

Does anyone have further information on it?
