I do not really know the situation but I have read the two postings you
referenced. Would the following paragraph be (i) true, and (ii) a more
positive thing to say in DPN? I don't think it would be useful to trigger a
stream of content-free "please don't break Xen" posts on debian-devel!
Limited Xen support in Lenny
A recent discussion on the debian-devel list highlighted that due to the
upstream delays in getting Xen support integrated in kernels beyond 2.6.18,
Lenny will need to ship with limited Xen support. Pasi Kärkkäinen explained
the situation  and Bastian Blank wrote an article  about the options we
have. His conclusion is to support a 2.6.18 kernel in Lenny,
until "lenny-and-a-half" adds better Xen support. However, the Lenny team
has not yet confirmed the final decision.
