Based on some discussion held during the Xen Summit, I have started
trying to organize the work that people are doing testing Xen.  Granted,
this bears a remarkable similarity to herding cats.

Nonetheless, I've started collecting information about all of the
tests that people run (many of them regularly) on the Xen wiki:


What I propose it that we as a community decide on what it means
when we say 'Xen works correctly' -- either for a release or a new
platform.  That is to say, what is the minimal set of functionality
required to consider a port 'working'?  And how do we determine that
that functionality _is_ working?  Ideally, we can build on the most
excellent work already done in xm-test and maybe even someday get
to the point where a developer can run 'make check' and know whether
or not their patch helped or hindered.

Any help that you can offer -- corrections, wiki editing, better
testing methodology -- is greatly appreciated.  Hit the wiki site
and let's see if we can decide something by the _next_ Xen Summit;
what's there is a very rough first pass and I'll be the first to
admit it still needs a _lot_ of work :).

Thanks in advance.
