DESCRIPTION

  This tool will ease the resizing of Xen guests, whether they are based
 upon loopback files or LVM partitions.

  Whilst the process of resizing a guest is pretty simple it can be fiddly
 to do the steps correctly in the right order:

1. Shutdown the guest. 2. Unmount the volume, if it is mounted. 3. Add to the space. 4. Check the filesystem. 5. Resize the filesystem. 6. Restart the guest.

  More than once I've heard of users making mistakes and breaking their
 filesystems; hence this tool.
