I would support Christoph at this point. I experimented some times with LXC/LXD, but I didn't find it very "handy". Sure, my problem, but in contrast to a running vserver-installation this is not my favoured solution. I set up a vserver-installation a short time ago and if this is running once, you have a stable and isolatded environment, that is "easy-to-use", if you got the basics. I regularly checked the site for an update, more recent than for "4.9.159", but OK, I'll check

next time. ;-)

I would be interested in an update too, for example for the 4.19 longterm kernel as proposed by @Christoph. I think, this project is worth the effort to have an up-to-date kernel-branch-support. But, if you say "and/or somebody is willing to sponsor development for a new kernel branch", the question is, how we can realize that?! Would be crowdfunding a possible variant? Any other ideas for that?
