Hi all,

(I hope this devel list is okay for GSoC related discussions.)

I work on the UEFI VM firmware project OVMF:

We would like to add support for Xen in OVMF if we can.  (Perhaps via
a GSoC project.)

I see this Xen GSoC 2011 idea has some overlap with our OVMF goal:
=> 'EFI in HVM guests'

OVMF currently only supports x86/x86-64 architectures.  Does this
match the Xen project's needs for UEFI?

Would it make sense for OVMF to attempt to take on a GSoC project for
Xen support, or would the Xen project rather add this support
separately?  I guess my question is, would the Xen project consider
using OVMF for UEFI support, or would it rather handle the UEFI
firmware project itself?
