We do not have time any longer (if we had time to start with) to
reconcile these divergent views.

Hence George's suggestion, which bypasses the problem.  By "a branch"
we mean some git branch on xenbits which is not any of our usual git
branches, and which we expect to die fairly soon.

Jan, I suggest

     refs/tags/4.10.meltdown.vixen.1   (signed by usual key)

If we can't agree to that[1] then I intend the following:

     refs/tags/4.10.meltdown.vixen.1   (signed by me personally)

[1] I am happy to accept any reasonable counterproposal for the exact
branch and tag names.

Separately, I would like to say that this branch will receive security
support from the Xen Project Security Team, but that security support
will be withdrawn at no less than 2 months' notice when a final
solution is availabler.

If anyone objects to that then we can go ahead with sending out
information ASAP and argue about security support status later.
