Thread-topic: [Xen-API] Re: [Xen-devel] Generic PV Guests on XCP?
Anil,  I am interested in your suggestion to use domain0 and the
lower-level Python tool stack for initial development on an XCP
platform.  Could you tell me more about your technique for doing that,
i.e. how do I go about getting access to domain0 and the 'xm' python api
set on XCP?
