Subject: release-notes: [SQUEEZE] vserver kernel flavors deprecated
Date: Thu, 18 Mar 2010 14:24:33 -0600
Package: release-notes
Severity: normal

As mentioned in [1], the "vserver" featureset is planned to be removed
from the Debian linux kernel after the squeeze release. Debian suggests that
users consider migrating vserver systems to either the LXC (Linux Containers)
features of the upstream kernel or to the "openvz" featureset.

I think this should have a stronger statement adding that
we can't guarantee to have any out of tree patch for the next release,
but are delivering them on a case per case decision.
Considering that this specific upstream might not want to support
the specific linux-2.6 version we might release with in squeeze+1.

also please scratch openvz featureset from aboves recommendation
it is also out of tree and may not be merged by 2.6.38.
lxc is continuously improving and network namespace support gaining
traction in mainstream.

thanks for opening that bug.

Maks & I discussed this on IRC and drafted the following text which we
believe is ready for inclusion:

 Debian 6.0 will be the final Debian release to include Linux kernel
 virtualization featuresets outside of mainline. This means that the
 OpenVZ and Linux-Vserver featuresets should be considered deprecated,
 and users should migrate to linux-2.6 upstream merged virtualization
 solutions like KVM, Linux Containers or Xen.
