Hi all,

I have just noticed that none of the non-credit schedulers are security
supported. Would it make sense to try to support at least one of them?

For example, RTDS is not new and Dario is co-maintaining it. It is
currently marked as Supported in the MAINTAINERS file. Is it really fair
to mark it as "Experimental" in SUPPORT.md?

The Null scheduler was new when we started this discussion, but now that
Xen 4.10 is entering code freeze, Null scheduler is not so new anymore.
We didn't get any bug reports during the 4.10 development window. By the
time this document is accepted and Xen 4.10 is out, Null could be a
candidate for "Supported" too.
