I’ve started to work on the Xen on ARM project by trying to get Xen running on the nice little Samsung Chromebook which run an ARM processor with the virtualization extensions. The Chromebook uses Exynos 5250 dual core platform with 2GB of RAM, which could be perfect for a good demo of Xen on ARM.
This is just a quick note to you all, to outline the transition and timetable from the old xen.org main website to the new xenproject.org site. Other sites, such as lists.xen.org, blog.xen.org, wiki.xen.org and others will follow.

As part of the move of Xen to the Linux Foundation, I have made a few proposals for Governance changes on the Xen Project mailing lists in the last few weeks. To avoid voting fatigue, several proposals are up for review or voting:

As a reminder, we are planning on a 9-month release cycle. Based on that, below are
our estimated dates:
