Thanks for your interest on this project!

I hope you are aware of the fact that the application period for
Outreachy 2017 is over, so you won't be able to participate in this

In case you are just looking for an interesting project to work on
you are welcome, of course!

That's a good starting point. :-)

I think the best would be to start with trying to build Xen locally and
get it running. See:


how to do it.

Try to install the built Xen binaries on a test system and boot into it.

In case of problems or questions


is a good starting point for finding relevant information.
