I've been told by the people from Rackspace that XCP was the way to go,
as this is what they use.

Thanks for all these links, but in fact, if I'm asking, it is because I
saw all of these documents, and that I'm even more confused. Nowhere, it
tells which file are the release sources to take, which one is
authoritative, which is the repository. There's 2 Git repository
referenced, and 2 hg. No definitive tar.gz to download. On the CD,
there's only some src.rpm files only, no tar.gz either, and what's on
the source CD is quite confusing as well.

So, which one should I use?
