This information will be mirrored on the Xen 4.3 Roadmap wiki page:

A couple of notes:

- I have updated the timeline to include a description of my proposed
criteria for accepting patches going forward.  Feedback is welcome.

- As we focus on getting a release for the 4.3 codebase, I have
removed items from the list that are either "not for 4.3" or are
purely external (e.g., Linux kernel or libvirt).

- Please start suggesting bug reports to put on this list.

= Timeline =

We are planning on a 9-month release cycle.  Based on that, below are
our estimated dates:
* Feature freeze: 25 March 2013
* Code freezing point: 8 April 2013
* First RC: 6 May 2013
* Release: 17 June 2013

The RCs and release will of course depend on stability and bugs, and
will therefore be fairly unpredictable.  Each new feature will be
considered on a case-by-case basis; but the general rule will be as

* Between feature freeze and code freeze, only features which have had
a v1 posted before the feature freeze, or are on this list, will be
considered for inclusion.

Based on this, I think the PVH patches and the claim user-space patches,
can be included past feature freeze right?


Mukesh just posted them last Friday (wohoo!). If we are to get it in
this Friday (25 March), that is a tall order.

Can we either slip the schedule or include it under the 'Code freezing
point' - at which there is a bit more breathing room?

If you think slipping the schedule a few weeks will help us get PVH in as a proper feature for 4.3, I'd be in favor of it. If it's a tech preview, it depends on how much it affects other non-tech-preview code.

We'll have to take a closer look when we hit the code freeze.
