Here's a new snapshot of the automated build and test tool for Xen. We
are trying to create a tool that will be as simple and lightweight as
possible, while being configurable enough to work with a variety of
tests and environments.  The purpose of this tool is to make it easier
to run tests under Xen on nightly tarball snapshots so that bugs can be
caught and fixed quickly.

It's still a little rough around the edges but should be functional for
a lot of people.  Right now, I have it running well enough on my test
machines that I can kick it off and have it automatically pull down xen,
build/boot it, start my VMs and run tests on all of them (and on domain

One major limitation is that initrd doesn't get built, though I'm not
sure if this is a limitation of xentest, or if it would better be
handled by make install from xen.

I would appreciate any feedback on how we might make this more useful,
as we intend to continue working on it and making it available.
