Re: [libvirt] XenStore fix



Hi again,

How should we tackle this? The discussions seems to have stopped,
but as this is a bug, it would be nice to have the fix in 0.7.0
if possible. Any suggestions of what an eveutual reworked patch
should contain, or is this in need of a discussion better saved
to a time where a release is not right around the corner?

Regards,
Jonas
