I think that sounds like a great idea, and I agree, having VMWare Free Server 
2.x support sounds more beneficial.

When we released VCL 2.1, we had the following road map for 2.2 and 2.3:

VCL 2.2

    * support for xCAT 2.3
    * improve cluster reservations
    * improve block reservations(rename to block allocations)

VCL 2.3

    * Service deployments
    * power management
    * VMWare Free Server 2.x

I'd like to propose swapping "improve cluster reservations" and "VMWare Free
Server 2.x".  We don't hear much about people using cluster reservations, and
they work fairly well if you only have one management node.  Windows 7 works
much better under VMWare Free Server 2.x; so, it would probably provide more
value to everyone to get that support added in sooner than reworking the
cluster reservation code.  That would give us this road map:

VCL 2.2

    * support for xCAT 2.3
    * VMWare Free Server 2.x
    * improve block reservations(rename to block allocations)

VCL 2.3

    * Service deployments
    * power management
    * improve cluster reservations

Any thoughts?

Thanks,
Josh
