The POD documentation in the scripts is up-to-date. (And therefore
also the man pages in the Debian package which is generated out of the

At least the download page is surely uptodate. I also tried to keep
the other pages uptodate. Maybe I missed _some_.

Getting the POD or man pages online is an idea.

Uh? I thought I catched all Sarge and Etch occurrences on the website.
Will check again.

Gentoo is currently not supported. And it IIRC wasn't in the last
release before the current team took over. At least I wasn't aware (or
just forgot :) that there even once was support.
As usual, patches are appreciated. I'm also currently checking if some
of my Gentoo friends use Xen, so I can get someone I can ask questions
and maybe some guinea pig. :-)

It surely is. Version 4.2 is included in Debian Squeeze and able to
install at least all releases from Etch to Squeeze plus a huge bunch
of Ubuntu releases.

Eh? No, the two mailing lists our main communication channel.

Tell me where and I fix it.
Oh, and please tell me to which IP xen-tools.org (or
www.xen-tools.org, should be the same) points. Just to be sure it
doesn't point to the old host before the move. (At least here it
points to the right IP address, 188.8.131.52)

Surely not, we resurrected it about a year ago and made three releases
and some beta releases since then.
> Real question is: can we continue to use xen-tools
That's why I took over the project and resurrected it.
