Hmm, I just re-read http://www.debian.org/releases/stab...deprecated
and it says "Debian GNU/Linux 6.0 will be the last release to include
Linux kernel virtualization featuresets outside of mainline. This means
that the OpenVZ and Linux-Vserver featuresets should be considered
OK, that's fair enough, but it doesn't say
"and support will be dropped about a year after Squeeze is released, but
before wheezy is ready", unless there's some fine-print I'm missing
Doesn't that look like dropping Debian+OpenVZ users in it a bit?
Suddenly they have to switch to a non-Debian kernel (or otherwise a
completely different virtualisation technology) half way through a
stable release with no notice, and then manually track security updates
outside of the Debian security infrastructure etc.?
Is LXC considered to be a practical OpenVZ replacement by now? It
doesn't really seem to be getting much attention, and I can't say I know
anyone who's using it...
