            Hi all,

            Has any one run these rpms?

            If so, are they reliable for a production box?

            I'm pretty conservative and usually stick with the vendor
            distros,  etc... but I may be missing out on some
            enhancements as the current  shipped version with
            Centos/RHEL is Xen 3.0.3.

        Don't believe everything RedHat puts in an rpm version string.
        The RedHat RPM says Xen 3.0.3 but inside it is really a
        modified xen 3.1.2. at least in version 5 update 2.
        That said, I have never tried the 3.3 rpms from gitco.
        Would also be interested to know anyone who has.

EVERYONE's using them! I use them in production now and have had no problems that I could attribute to the rpms themselves. Note, that I only use the x86_64 rpms.

we contacted the gitco guy for his SPEC files and built our own. imho, you should do the same as it's not a good meta-idea to download binary-only distributions from untrusted/less-trusted sources. i mean, i'm sure that there's nothing malicious in the gitco builds specifically, it's just a thought on practices.

Some people, when confronted with a problem, think "I know, I'll use Windows."
Now they have two problems.
