My english is not very well, but I will try:

Lenny with limited Xen support

Lenny will have limited Xen support because the vanilla-kernel has only
32-bits domU (guest) support with PAE, and no dom0 (host) support. The
dom0 in Etch does not support PAE.
Pasi Kärkkäinen explained the situation [1] and Bastian Blank wrote an
article [2] about the options we have. His conclusion is to support an
2.6.18 kernel in Lenny, until Lenny+1/2 adds better Xen support.

Realize that the article of Bastian gives only options, the conclusion
is his conclusion. Will this confuse people?

With regards,
Paul van der Vlis.
