Hi Teo,

Thankyou for the work you are doing documenting VGA passthrough, the
Xen community is in dire need of more people contributing well written
and comphrensive guides.
However PDF isn't the greatest format for consumption as it's hard to
index, requires an X session to read and is much harder to edit
As others have mentioned, the Wiki is the most ideal format we have
for sharing documentation right now.
Lars and a number of the other members of the community have put a
massive amount of work into making the wiki the one-stop-shop for Xen
know-how and it would be really awesome if we could add to this
knowledge contained in the wiki.

If you would like I can help you format your document on the wiki so
that it is readable and well presented. :)

Take for instance the Beginners guide I wrote earlier this year that
presents quite well in wiki format:
