Branch: CURRENT, Version: 3.1.4nb8, Package name: xenkernel3-3.1.4nb8, Maintainer: bouyer

Xen is a virtual machine monitor for x86 hardware (runs only on
i686-class CPUs), which supports running multiple guests operating
systems on a single machine. Guest OSes (also called "domains")
require a modified kernel which supports Xen hypercalls in replacement
to access to the physical hardware. At boot, the xen kernel is loaded
(via grub) along with the guest kernel for the first domain (called
domain0). domain0 has privileges to access the physical hardware (PCI
and ISA devices), administrate other domains and provide virtual
devices (disks and network) to other domains.

This package contains the 3.1 Xen3 kernel itself. PCI passthrough is
supported. Both non-PAE and PAE versions of xen are provided for
i386; one must use XEN3_DOM[0U] and XEN3PAE_DOM[0U] kernels, respectively.
3.1 is no longer maintained upstream.

Log message:
Mark packages as not ready for python-3.x where applicable;
either because they themselves are not ready or because a
dependency isn't. This is annotated by
PYTHON_VERSIONS_INCOMPATIBLE=  33 # not yet ported as of x.y.z
respectively, please use the same style for other packages,
and check during updates.

Use versioned_dependencies.mk where applicable.
Use REPLACE_PYTHON instead of handcoded alternatives, where applicable.
Reorder Makefile sections into standard order, where applicable.

Remove PYTHON_VERSIONS_INCLUDE_3X lines since that will be default
with the next commit.

Whitespace cleanups and other nits corrected, where necessary.

Log message:
Explain xen version differences.

There are 5 versions of xen in pkgsrc, which is confusing.  Explain in
DESCR which version is in which package (xenkernel3 contains 3.1), and
which versions support PCI passthrough (only 3.1).  Explain which
versions support non-PAE (3.1) and PAE (3.3, 4.1, 4.2), because the
HOWTO is out of date and it's easy to end up with a non-working system
on a 3.1 to 3.3 update.  Cuation that 2.0 is beyond crufty.

This is a DESCR-only change (with PKGREVISION++ of course).
