Core / Block development slow - hard for community to contribute

      Description

      XenServer has come leaps and bounds in the last 3 years and a lot of people have been working really hard on it, however there are lots of really critical core fixes / features / upgrades that realistically should have been actioned by now.

      I know that Citrix provides limited resources, but the good news is that XenServer is (now) open source!

      The problem: beyond creating bugs and submitting lots it's hard for the community to contribute their time to help fix issues or implement features.

      • How do I comply to the development guidelines?
      • Where is the official git repo that I can submit pull requests to?
      • Do submitted pull requests / pushes trigger a CI run?
      • If (and I hope) they do trigger a CI run, how do I watch it and check the output etc... I.e. Is it on travis or can I run the build and tests on our local gitlab-CI?

      For Citrix to save money supporting XenServer, to increase the performance of XenServer, to add test coverage, to add features quickly - get the community involved.
