This isn't the rationale that was provided to the OGB. The rationale provided looks more like this: http://mail.opensolaris.org/pipermail/ogb-discuss/2007-August/002239.html and this: http://mail.opensolaris.org/pipermail/ogb-discuss/2007-August/002250.html That is, LDoms are special. We were told rather directly that there was no point in having a Virtualization community because there was _NOTHING_ that could be shared between these projects -- no high level management or coordination, no tools support, and no joint projects. If that's not true, then it certainly comes as news to me. > the communities.

The only ones in favor of the broader community were the other groups, such as Xen: http://mail.opensolaris.org/pipermail/ogb-discuss/2007-August/002234.html -- James Carlson, Solaris Networking <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> Sun Microsystems / 1 Network Drive 71.232W Vox +1 781 442 2084 MS UBUR02-212 / Burlington MA 01803-2757 42.496N Fax +1 781 442 1677 _______________________________________________ zones-discuss mailing list email@example.com
