  • Thread-topic: [Xen-users] xen on arch linux

I thought about trying to contribute to the Beginners Guide[1], but I don't 
know enough about Debian to help out on the Debian specific parts and I don't 
know enough about Xen to help out on the Xen specific parts. I think the Arch 
Xen wiki[2] is essentially the Beginners Guide but with a little less Xen 
specific stuff and replacing the Debian parts with more complete Arch parts. I 
guess maybe my hope was that some "downstream" wiki work would eventually be 
useful upstream.
