It's not a mailing list, it's the public git repo for the xen kernel
packages. :-)

As I said, Anthony or I will probably do it at some point (and I've
also forwarded your mail to the upstream Linux Xen maintainers).  But
you sending a PR accomplishes a few things:

1. It gets things there faster
2. It gets you more familiar with the CentOS workflow, so that you can
more easily send improvements / fixes in the future. :-)
