(I know this has been asked times and times before.)

but... What's the current status of Xen/x86_64?
Second, considering the fact that rawhide/x86_64 still doesn't have
kernel-xen and the pending release of test3, what are the chances of
Xen/x86_64 making it's way into FC5?
Any chance it'll make it into test3? (I assume that past test3, only bug
fixes will be introduced until FC5-release)
