Re: Possible support for openvz also in the next version of stable

Hi Ben and Pavel

Thanks a lot. Then I think I know the way forward. We will create a
repository (either on debian.net or keep the one on openvz.org) and
put the kernels there. I will document this in the vzctl and vzquota
packages to give further instructions.

Pavel, do this sounds good to you.

Best regards,

// Ola
