Description Eduardo Habkost 2007-07-10 12:30:40 EDT
Package Change Request
Package Name: kernel-xen-2.6
New Branches: FC-6

The kernel-xen-2.6 package was created after the FC-6 release, because the 
rebasing speed of the non-xen kernel was faster than are able to rebase the 
xen patches. Recently FC-6 kernel-xen updates were made using the same source 
package that is used for the non-xen kernel. However, the FC-6 kernel was 
rebased to 2.6.22 and kernel-xen can't use this kernel version right now. We 
need kernel/kernel-xen to be split on FC-6, also.

It would be useful if the new kernel-xen-2.6/FC-6 branch is created as a copy 
of kernel/FC-6, keeping the package history. If this is not possible, 
importing kernel-2.6.20-1.2962.fc6 source RPM into the branch would be enough.

This is internal CVS.   Reassigning.
Comment 2 Eduardo Habkost 2007-07-12 13:22:21 EDT
A question: after the kernel-xen-2.6 FC-6 branch is created, will the FC-6 
update system work when I try to release an update to this package, even if a 
kernel-xen-2.6 was never released before? (kernel-xen binary packages were 
released before, but they were built from the kernel source rpm in the past)
Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2007-07-16 10:02:08 EDT
That should work with the update system.  And the branch should be done with the
bits from FC-6 kernel copied over.
