But it doesn't make sense to release them both as part of the same source
package, and it doesn't necessarily make sense to keep them in the same svn
repo.  Can you explain why it's better for the xen userspace/hypervisor
packages to be kept under the aegis of the kernel team, instead of for
Bastian (and other interested developers) to join the pkg-xen team?  Is
there really so much more interest in the xen-tools among the members of the
kernel team than among the, er, Xen team?

Holding all the members of the pkg-xen team responsible for what one of
their fellows has written in his blog would be petty and immature, and would
not exactly be the kind of encouragement one would hope to see from the
kernel team seeking the input of others interested in Xen packaging.
