The policy hasn't changed since we originally removed Xen. The Xen
userspace continues to be distributed, and Fedora can run as a Xen
guest. The Xen dom0 host kernel will be considered for re-introduction
once it is merged in the mainline upstream kernel trees. The latter
is still actively being pursued by the Xen community & developers
but there's no firm ETA since LKML can be somewhat unpredictable :-)
Yeah, it has taken pretty long :)
Some important bits got into Linux 2.6.36,
and more should go into 2.6.37. Slowly..
Upstream has a long-term maintained dom0-capable kernel
git tree based on Linux 2.6.32, and will soon start tracking 2.6.36.
Michael has been building Fedora (f12) xendom0 kernel rpms.
