Bug#566714: ITP: xen-tools -- Tools to manage Xen virtual servers
Owner: Axel Beckert <firstname.lastname@example.org>
* Package name : xen-tools
Version : 4.1

Description : Tools to manage Xen virtual servers
Since I didn't notice in time that xen-tools has been removed from
unstable and testing, this is an ITP instead of the ITA which it
would have been otherwise.
I don't think it's obsolete yet -- at least not until xen Dom0 support
itself has been removed from Debian. Which is currently estimated to
be the case after squeeze unless Xen dom0 support gets into mainline.
I know that upstream stopped development since Steve doesn't use
xen-tools (nor xen) anymore.
So I'm currently evaluating how much work it would be to get xen-tools
back in shape for sid and possibly squeeze (partially by doing some of
that work of course :-) -- including looking through all previously
open bug reports and taking over upstream development.
So if anyone else wants xen-tools in squeeze (or for how long Xen will
be available in Debian) please get in contact with me. I'm happy about
any further helping hands to join the effort.
