No Xen dom0 in Fedora 12 Hopefully 13
Zhang Enming was disappointed to learn the pv_ops dom0 support for hosting Xen guests, dropped in Fedora 9, is still not present in Fedora 12. Zhang referenced numerous videos documenting success in creating "a fully working Xen pv-ops dom0 Fedora 11 host operating system."
It was decided two years ago this month that Fedora "simply cannot spend more time forward porting Xen kernels" and "the plan is to re-focus 100% of all Xen kernel efforts onto paravirt_ops." See FWN#137.
Pasi Kärkkäinen noted "pv_ops dom0 kernel has only recently started working for many/most people, so it was too late for F12 release" and "There are still some missing features, most notably missing blktap2 support for tap:aio: file-based images."
