As I can't put the code right now, I'll try to give you some details :

Project Name : XenOrchestra
Licence : GPL 3 ? (or 2 don't know the real differences)

Small FAQ ;)

-> What is the goal of Xen Orchestra ?
Provide a simple and clear interface to Xen, across the Xen API with a
**open source** app. Because I love open-source, I would like to stay
in this philosophy ;)

-> What can I do with the first release ?
The first release will be an alpha, but you can know *where* are you
DomU and more :
- start/stop/pause/remove a domU (as you can see in the first screenshot) ;
- make live migrations on other dom0 ;
- have informations about a domU : cpu,ram,network etc.

-> When it's released ?
I'll try to give you the alpha version ASAP, so.. let's say next
Sunday (sept. 13). I need to make an installer and "purge" the code to
offer you a "clear" version.

-> The future ?
First, create xen-orchestra.com with a FAQ (this one :D), what is the
project, a forum and a git server in order to create a community. I
start now !
Then, make a Debian Package :D
Next, I would like to implement "setters" (change cpu/ram/network
conf) : not really hard. And finally, use this interface to create
domU and templates...

See you soon, hope my project can help people to stay with open source Xen :)

Don't forget to make the entire thing accessible to users (not just root) with somewhat granular access control
otherwise you spent all this time to recreate the exact same thing that everyone else has written.

When will we be able to look at your code? I use xen and VMs for my classes and I start in a few weeks. Like everyone else that needs
non-root administration to domUs I'm writing my own interface. I need a user named bob to have control over bob's vm and no other.

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