virtualization

Report from the virtualization workshop at Linuxhotel, Essen/Germany

Last weekend, we had a fantastic virtualization hacking workshop at the Linuxhotel in Essen/Germany.

Here's my report on what I and others did there:

I built a FAI USB Stick for Installation of Debian Etch base systems to test Ganeti installation from Scratch

Good ideas from the KVM Guys

Just found KVMtest, a tool said to be used to record events to replay them - for example for running automated tests - in the case of the KVM guys for testing system installation and other stuff.

back from FOSDEM

FOSDEM 2008 was a great success, I believe!

Bureaucracy and code quality

The Xen developers have a quite bureaucratic approach about getting patches in - say, they simply refuse to even read a mail that doesn't have PATCH in the subject line, and they asbolutely refuse to consider making a change you only _describe_ to them - but that doesn't mean only high quality code gets in.

I had the funny experience, that a bugfix hint from me about a bug in the xendomains script, which only required one line to be changed, and me therefore not bothering about creating a patch with diff, simply didn't make it in.
