What Xen implementation is considered "supported" for FC16 DomU? I'm asking
because on "Xen implementation" we were testing yesterday FC16 DomU
installation failed compared to FC15 DomU success on the very same Dom0. Are
failures like we've encountered candidates for bugreports?
Is there a place (wikipage, bugzilla keyword, etc.) to collect Fedora 16 Xen
