Yeah, we should ask to reject the packages and why (at least a link to the
discussion on the devel list).
It would be ugly if Bastian has changed a lot from 2.0.6 and we would have to
support a clean upgrade from 2.0.6 (or 2.0.7 inofficial packages) + from
bastian 3.0.x package. It would also only make the "disgreement" public that
seems to be existing between bastians plans and more or less the rest of the
people that discussed about xen on the debian-devel list.
We should mail the ftp-masters + cc to debian-devel, pkg-xen-devel, bastian &
adam and tell publicy that we want to provide xen packages (for userspace and
hypervisor) and that there seems to be a consense for that and that we would
like for that reason that bastian packages gets rejected + that we would like
again that bastian + adam to join our efforts.
That would make clear that we want to "takeover" but with the possibility that
everybody that wants to contribute can join us easily. And it would inform
everybody about our plans, so not someone else tries to have our packages
argh, I am wondering a bit... at first it seems to me that there is no
interessting for xen3 in debian and I made my own packages and now there are
soooo many people interessted in xen3 and starting a fight about who will
take over adams work... is debian always so "political"? :)
