Hi,

As far as I can tell, Xen has always been a first class citizen in
Alpine: ISO image on download page, available in main, security updates
quickly available etc.

Are there any plans for this not to continue in the foreseeable future?

I have used Xen on Alpine for a long time for various projects, but is
now in a position where I can influence the decision on software used
in large deployments at the company I work for, and would really like
to see Alpine and Xen to reign here.

Thanks in advance.


Regards,
Mogens Jensen

I don't see why Alpine would drop Xen support, unless upstream made 
maintenance of it impossible.  At present, there is no indication that 
this will happen.
