I want to add my following questions because in the handbook are they
unfortunately
_not_ explained:

1) What is this "kernel-current" ? And how can I make myself this
"kernel-current" using the base system
and the tools in it ?

2) What is "mdroot" ? And how can I build a "mdroot"?

3) Where are the Xen sources located? Does The FreeBSD project just
write patches which are then
used to modify the original sources to get Xen run on FreeBSD
OR
is there a fork like source repository where the FreeBSD Xen is maintained?

I hope that someone can answer me these questions but also
I think including the answers to the Handbook would be a great help
for all who want to use
Xen on FreeBSD.


regards
Gueven
