Fengguang, curious if there was some effort in this area.
Also since we have tons of test suites out there in the wild a while
ago I had asked help by LF admins for a wiki we could use to
centralize documentation. Projects might have their own wiki already /
project home page, but we didn't have anything centric, we also didn't
have a place where any test work could just create their own page
should they want to avoid that and instead use an existing wiki. To
help with this we now have this:
If your test work has no public page it can use that. I've tried to
document things I know of already. My understanding is zero day bot
has no central documentation wiki, perhaps we can use that as its home
I've updated the wiki to point to the new 0-day home page but still
curious about ongoing efforts over Xen integration. I realize the task
at hand is huge undertaking -- but just curious if its on the roadmap.
Thanks so much for all your awesome work folks!
