  I know how to manage secure access to a CVS server, add users, write
access, provide anonymous access and snapshot to tarballs. I have no idea
how to do this with a mercurial server, that's #1 reason. I want the
source code tools to be hosted on a server I manage too.
Why do you think it is weird ? libvirt is not part of Xen source tree.
You should not have to recompile libvirt when you compile Xen (and vice
versa) so where is the problem for you ?
