Skip to content Website Update Project

The current website has done a nice job of allowing people in the community access to the source code, released builds, documentation, mailing lists, etc; however, I believe that can be transformed into a vital information repository for the Xen community leveraging the latest in web technology (like that marketing speak?). To accomplish this transformation, I am starting a new project to redo the existing website. All phases of this project will be open to the community for feedback and input; after all, is a global community of technical experts with an amazing collective knowledge-base for me to tap into.

The intial phase of this project is to define the various “groups” of users who visit to understand their wants and needs. I have taken a first pass at this and am publishing a Website Requirements document in this blog. Please feel free to send email direct to me at or add comments below. The more input the community gives, the better the final result.

I expect to start web development design and changes in Q3 so I plan to spend the rest of this quarter doing the necessary groundwork to ensure that the community gets the best solution possible.
