Hello,

Debian has planned the release of lenny in September [1], with it's
freeze comming in mid July. Will the openvz patch for 2.6.24 be
considered stable by then? Or is it still highly experimental? What are
you planning to do with lenny?

If not stable by then, all debian openvz users would be forced to either
stick with etch, or use an older version of the kernel with lenny. The
problem with the second is that there won't be any official security
support, so I'd like to avoid going that way.

Is online migration from a 2.6.18 HN to a 2.6.24 HN supported/possible?

Thanks,

Alexander

1. Debian Lenny will include 2.6.26, not 2.6.24
2. It's looks like OpenVZ will be included.
3. As I can see 2.6.24 openvz005 is stable enough, so I use it without
problem (and provide pre-built debian packages from my repo).
