I'm out of office from the 8th to the 16th unfortunately.

From my side:

I've spoken to a fair number of folks on the To list here in 1-1
discussions about this.

I think it would be hugely beneficial if there could be an open
repository of information that describes in clear terms what the
specific engineering items are which are needed to make Xen viable for
assessment towards safety certification.

I'm not a Xen expert by any measure but off the top I recall that one
item was the task of removing the reliance on the Linux kernel for

I am certain there are more.

The motivation behind this is to spur folks into acknowledging the
technical work that remains to be done. Whether that work then happens
behind closed proprietary doors to generate value or in the open is an
implementation detail.

If nothing else - it would definitely act as an accelerator.

Personally, I would be thrilled if there was enough momentum to openly
massage Xen into the shape that I allude to. If that takes things 70%
ahead with the remaining 30% done by misc Xen commercial entities as
their differentiation value add - that's a huge bonus for the ecosystem
and for the future of Xen.
