I'm not sure what this means. You are free to ask but if having testers is
a condition for you to be able to finish your work, then you should state
it explicitly. In the LTS team we often ask for testers on this list but we
rarely get answers....

-lts is a mixed list with LTS users and with LTS developers

Why does
still have lots of question marks?

What are we waiting to get a security release out?

Note that I'm not a Xen user and not a Xen developer. I don't know much
about Xen and I'm not in a position to test your work. Many of us are in
a similar position and if we decided to outsource the work to Credativ,
it's because we want you to take care of fixing and testing.

The LTS team would like to have to handle only the administrative work of
publishing a DLA.

No, cf above. What would you want us to look at?
