Ok so Xen 4.2.4 and Linux 3.10.32 dom0 kernel are out in the xen4centos repo now.
Also upstream released Xen 4.4.0 today.
In general Xen upstream supports live migrations from (current-1) to (current) version.
So if we want to provide a (live) migration path from Xen 4.2.* to 4.4.* we probably
should package Xen 4.3.2 first.. So people could migrate from 4.2.4 -> 4.3.2 -> 4.4.0.
What do you think?
(Fedora 20 has Xen 4.3.2 rpms in the updates repo, for .spec foo, if needed).
