Done, Linux implementation scheduled for 3.8, and Qemu side is also done
and being upstreamed right now.

OK, so I'll mark the Linux component as "done", and the qemu component as "Good".

I will be taking on this project, following Intel, FreeBSD and Konrad
suggestions. Since I'm just starting now, I will mark it as "Fair".

OK, thanks for the info. Out of curiosity, if someone were to consider this a blocker, would having someone else working on it speed things up, do you think? Or is it development probably "non-parallelizable"? :-)

   status: Sample script posted by Bastian ("[RFC] openvswitch support
I have no experience with Open vSwitch, so if some with more experience
wants to take on this I would appreciate it. It should just be a matter
of adding a hotplug script.

OK -- well shall I take your name off and call this "poor"? That would put it on the list of "at-risk" features for which we would ask for volunteers.

* Rationalized backend scripts (incl. driver domains)
   owner: roger@citrix
   status: patches submitted
   prognosis: Good
The first part of this effort, that includes a new hotplug interface for
libxl has been submitted for review. The protocol between the control
and the driver domains still needs to be designed/revised based on Ian
Jackson proposal.

OK -- so, should I downgrade this to "Fair"?

Thanks for the updates,
