Intel hosts Xen Project Hackathon, April 28-29 in Shanghai

I am pleased to announce the next Xen Project Hackathon to be held this spring.  Although we call it a Hackathon, the event consists of several parallel sessions in which Xen Project developers will create, discuss and review designs and changes that impact Xen’s architecture.

looking for Java stacktrace samples

I am currently working on log normalization as well as improvements for rsyslog's imfile. Among the things that regularly come up on the rsyslog mailing list is support for multi-line logs and Java stack traces in general.I would like to see what I can do to improve processing of these.
