This is a bit unusual. Can you show which errors you are getting on stderr that you expect to not be getting?

The boot string that the configuration file is based on works fine with stderr redirection.

royger@, Do you have any thoughts on how to elegantly check if a VM is running during start, to skip it? Will xl create generally do the right thing if a VM is already running?

royger@: I am finding that Windows sometimes needs two shutdown attempts. Should this be left to the user to verify that the shutdown was successful, or should we consider some logic to wait, destroy, etc?

(Not sure how to submit unsubmitted comments...)
Regarding "status": This relies entirely on xl(1) for status, and it just provides the facts. There is no daemon involved short of xencommons and the Xen kernel itself. I had to use xencomains_cmd because without it, the rc framework would look to see if xl was running (xl top in my case for debugging), and it would say "Hey, is this already running?" when you started domains. NetBSD opts for a "list" rather than status, and Linux does things I need to decrypt.

I believe at least some of these should be addressed by fixing whatever failed rather than by excluding parts from the build; do you have a list of the errors you encountered with the various combinations? i.e., I would be interested in seeing how ping and dhclient fail under DYNAMICROOT.

Ed's comments are all accurate. This document conflates many things and suggest we take a moment to address them at BSDCan or in advance. I for one think the nuts and bolts of SVN be separated out, ideally in a way that produces a document that can double as an in-base man page for snvlite(1).
