From Xen

This wiki is a major documentation resource for project. It is freely editable by everyone and participation is actively encouraged by anyone who can see a way to improve it. Below you will find details about the wiki itself, including how to find what you are looking for and how to create an account and start editing. So don't hesitate: improve something today!

Icon Ambox.png The Xen Project Wiki has been subject to sustained severe spam attacks in the last few years. To solve this and keep the wiki usable for everyone, we had to lock down the wiki and create an editors group. CAPTCHAs do not appear to work against the spam attacks we have seen. Until we have a solution in place, please send an email to community dot manager at xenproject dot org requesting that you need wiki access. If you have an account, include your wiki username; if you don't have an account, please give a preferred username and email address, and one will be created for you.

Navigating the Wiki

We use categories to help manage Wiki pages:

  • Category Index lists the key managed categories in the wiki
  • Our category pages are not normally just indexes, but have a hand-edited header, which highlight important information.


The main categories that are used in the Wiki's navigation structure on the left. Pages in these categories will be automatically added to the index.
