Subject: [Xen-devel] Xen 4.10 Development Update

This email only tracks big items for xen.git tree. Please reply for
items you
woulk like to see in 4.10 so that people have an idea what is going
on and
prioritise accordingly.

You're welcome to provide description and use cases of the feature
working on.

= Timeline =

We now adopt a fixed cut-off date scheme. We will release twice a
year. The upcoming 4.10 timeline are as followed:

* Last posting date: September 15th, 2017
* Hard code freeze: September 29th, 2017
* RC1: TBD
* Release: December 2, 2017

Note that we don't have freeze exception scheme anymore. All patches
that wish to go into 4.10 must be posted no later than the last posting
date. All patches posted after that date will be automatically queued
into next release.

RCs will be arranged immediately after freeze.

We recently introduced a jira instance to track all the tasks (not
only big)
for the project. See:

Most of the tasks tracked by this e-mail also have a corresponding
jira task
referred by XEN-N.

I have started to include the version number of series associated to
feature. Can each owner send an update on the version number if the
was posted upstream?

= Projects =

== Hypervisor ==

*  Per-cpu tasklet
  -  XEN-28
  -  Konrad Rzeszutek Wilk

*  Add support of rcu_idle_{enter,exit}
  -  XEN-27
  -  Dario Faggioli

=== x86 ===

*  Allow ioreq server interface to support XenGT (v7)
  -  XEN-43
  -  Yu Zhang
  -  Paul Durrant

I think this is either done or obsolete now. Not sure which.

CCed Yu Zhang to tell which one.

Thanks, Julien. This is done now. :)

I may have messed up with the update. Was it upstreamed for Xen 4.9 or Xen 4.10? For the former, I will just totally remove it from the update.
