OK. Please remember that Eddy doesn't have anything to do with Xen
He simply offered to write the first article (which is the
It's absolutely fine to make contact with Eddy. Except, his email is
down right now (I am not sure what's going on...)
His email is Edward Macnaghten <eddy_at_edlsystems.com>. The whole domain
doesn't seem to be working...

OK. But please remember that your artricle would be focused on
Linux-VServer (see the outline above!)

(I am feeling a little exposed now :-} )
Just because I like repeating myself...
The Focus will contain the following articles:
1) Introduction by Eddy (covering the bit on QEMU, UML, Xen and
2) XEN (taking out the "nasty" part). This article will only cover
3) Linux-VServer. This article will only cover Linux-VServer and
"isolation". You could also explain how the separation is acheived
You should coordinate with Eddy about the article's contents.
Well... please keep your answers *very* pragmatic.
What I need now, is the name of a person who is able and willing to
hand in an article for us (you?). It would be better for me to have
*one* contact (talkng to groups can be difficult...).
Also, please remember that I'm not subscriberd to the vserver mailing
