I'll try to give a short overview ..

Jacques patches ended with ctx17 and a ctx17a release
which promised some features for ctx18, hist stuff can
be downloaded at ftp://ftp.solucorp.qc.ca/pub/vserver

ctx17a requires vserver 0.23 tools to work, and will
show some warnings/errors

 - ulimit can't set limit ...
   which can be solved by adding -HS in S_ULIMIT
   or using the 16_ulimit-unfix.diff.bz2 patch
 - Kernel do not support chrootsafe(), using chroot()
   has to be ignored for now

I've done some enhancements to the vserver patches
and rediffed them since around 2.4.16 ... if you
need special features like disk/memory limits or
per vps quota stuff, or just a patch for the recent
kernels, you have to look in my places, which are
'confusing' at the moment ...


and the older places:


if you want to go for RH kernels, Alex Lyashkov
provides an independant tree at which has a lot
of features, but is RH specific ...


(we are currently trying to synchronize those
projects for the userspace, so maybe in the near
future it will not matter which kernel patch you
use ... ;)


PS: there is an irc channel #vserver at irc.oftc.net
