proffessional curiosity:

I mean why XenServer Express.
there are so many virtualization products out there,
even LINBIT has one ;)

not anything pro or contra your choice,
I'm just curious what your reasons are.

or do you happen to work for citrix?

now. I suppose that "you" was me.
I write a lot on (this) mailing list,
so, do you mind to put me in context with a reference to that message?

you are not supposed to change those.
we did that for you.

would you like to post your (working and not working) patches for review?
that makes it much easier to comment on them ;-)

the drbd version you are using would be worth mentioning as well...

and, before you start patching drbd yourself,
why not ask us to do the integration work for you,
and patch it if necessary?

if you have any problems integrating drbd,
contact LINBIT.

I mean, that is what we are here for, right?
