Note that you do not need to be subscribed to the list to post
(although non-subscribers are moderated this usually happens pretty
quickly) and that list policy is to CC people so you shouldn't miss
any replies.


Although a bugzilla instance does exist it is not well maintained or
widely used by developers. If you really want to file a bug in
bugzilla you are strongly recommended to also post to the mailing

This does not make things easier for us, because rather than recurrently
check a simple bug status field in the Xen tracker, we'd have to be
tapped into Xen development, and follow the email thread & any relevant
commits closely. In reality I'm not even subscribed to xen-devel.

We recently introduced a tracker ([1]) to help us following the state of bugs/features. It is managed by maintainers and read-only for the others.

The usual process is to report the bug on the mailing-list and a maintainer will create a bug on the tracker if we have no immediate solution.

In this case, the patch made rc6. So I believe the problem is resolved.
