Yes, we had this discussion last year sometime and agreed to use a
known-good daily snapshot for that reason.  I think it's still a good
idea, as most people are not (or should not be) building ramdisks
anymore (now that Xensource hosts a binary for download).

Yes, I think that the best thing to do would be as Jimi suggests, and for us to pick one known-good snapshot, and host it ourselves. That way, the source for the XenSource ramdisks will always be available and we don't have to rely
upon the upstream buildroot archive.

The next time I build a ramdisk I'll put the buildroot tar on
xm-test.xensource.com, and change the Makefile to refer to that instead.

Thanks Ewan,
Could you also make sure that the Arch maintainers have the ability to upload images as well?
