My dev me, of course. Your dev you, or me but only if I have time.

I just note I am already running 2.6.25.4 build by hand, etc. Has 2.6.25.4
some regression which I could test? Note below my time constraints.

In my case I am not looking for credit but for learning. I can only spend one
hour each day to this subject. Tasks which would require a deadline would be
a problem for me.

To start, I would like somebody point me to something easy to do, taking into
account such time constraints.

Something that would require the installation of Xen to be able to reproduce
and debug a specific bug via Xen serial port would be cool. Anyway just
point me to something...
