I think he may have meant, how much interest the Virt SIG has in
recieving contributions from the OpenVZ community; and I think the
answer to that is, very much. :-)

Lars and I both work with the Xen Project, and so obviously have much
more experience with Xen than OpenVZ; and most of my own engineering
time will go towards Xen.  But we (and the CentOS board) are committed
to running it as an inclusive project.
