Hi, Stephen,

As you've probably noticed, there have been a few emails on the list
offering existing research efforts as starting points for the project, and a
few emails asking for technical help implementing introspection.  Pretty
much all threads have been dead ends.

I think we have two problems.  First, without funding we can't put resources
towards the project.  Here at ATC-NY we have 2 proposals in the pipeline, so
we may be able to do some work if either gets funded.  I don't know about
the funding status of other participants.

The second problem is the difficulty in altering the hypervisor for those of
us unfamiliar with it.  For example, we spent about a hundred man-hours
trying to implement "memory trigger" functionality, but had to abandon the
effort.  I think the group needs some level of dedicated support from
XenSource or Citrix to answer questions.

I'm inviting other opinions on how we could move the project forward.  I
suspect most participants are still very interested, but also very busy on
other projects.  If anyone else has an update, please let us know.

 - Steve
