A lot of the sig work in general has been waiting on the availability
of the community build system.  That work is progressing apace, and
I've just been given access to the development version of it.

However, now I'm heads-down writing a talk for LinuxCon and the Xen
Summit in Chicago next week (along with other miscellaneous things),
and the following week I'll be on holiday; so I won't be able to start
working on the update until September in earnest.

I've posted a draft of a Xen 4.4.1 rebase, though, so if one of the
core CentOS team had time / energy, they might be able to start
working on something sooner.
