Good idea. I've added this, with a slight tweak (I used NOTUPGRADABLE=true for
consistency with the negative-sense of the NotUpgradable xenstore key, and
dropped the "e" for uniformity). The relevant text now reads:
For convenience the linux guest agent will be modified so that sources a
which has default contents:
#Uncomment in appliance VM
If the file is modified so that NOTUPGRADABLE is defined as "true" then the
NotUpgradable key will be automatically added to xenstore. The linux guest
agent will still continue to write the existing version number keys.
