XCP Community Meetings

XCP used to run monthly community meetings. The next meeting is not currently scheduled. Please contact community.manager@xen.org if you would want to be included in a future meeting and/or have any specific issues to discuss. Past meetings were dial-in meetings, with active participation at Freenode: #xen-api on IRC. However we are open to suggestions for future meetings.
