Re-document Xen integration with OpenStack

Registered by Tom Fifield on 2013-08-11

The ability to run Xen with OpenStack has been poorly documented for a while, with about 30 bugs currently assigned to fix it - most of which have not been touched in more than a year. Find a new maintainer for Xen documentation, and ensure installation and configuration is up to par with other hypervisors.

Starting content can be found at http://docs.openstack.org/trunk/config-reference/content/introduction-to-xen.html - but it is likely incomplete, inaccurate and untested for some time.

== This blueprint is really old, and no real progress has been made. I have tried to contact some key people via email, to no avail. I am closing this blueprint for now, but am happy to discuss having this work done at a later date, if someone is willing to drive the project. == (Lana, Docs PTL)

I am happy to help, certainly when it comes to reviewing content, answering questions - John Garbutt

New documentation structure: https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Blueprint-restructure-documentation

Should install documentation contain XenServer related installation instructions?
