comment How did the term “hypervisor” come into use?

comment How to deal with well-meaning open-source contributors?
@Solo: Certainly. It's also OK to expect/ask the contributor to maintain and fix bugs in their feature, at least until the rest of the team learns that code, and especially for larger commits.
