    I would go with the wait-n-see approach as well. We don't want to go
ahead with something that could break current installs only to go back
once the root cause is resolved. As long as we're not facing an
immenient freeze let's wait and see if it doesn't get fixed before then.

    I haven't been keeping up as good as usual due to my recent move and
all, but has anyone checked to see how Fedora 7 is handling Xen yet? I'd
looked at the FC 5 & 6 installs but haven't had a chance to check out 7
and see how they're doing things or what kernel version they have
installed. I tend to keep an eye on their progress so if I see something
that works, why not consider it.
