I think the new-developers list is sparsely populated at the moment - we
haven't done a huge amount of advertising of it, so your requests for
help probably aren't reaching the right people, especially as this is
quite a technical issue and you have a lot background :-)
Would you mind re-posting to the main oi-dev list?
Alan Coopersmith at Oracle maintains the XNV consolidation and may also
be able to help you, I believe he follows the oi-dev list.
If you don't get any answers on there, I'll try and prod/poke some
