you could add the XtreemOS project to the list. It's grid project and we
need to use containers for grid job isolation. We're currently using BLCR
for checkpointing, and also kerrighed, but aim at switching to containers
and will work on container checkpointing. XtreemOS is related to
kerlabs & kerrighed, but has broader interests in containers.

By the way, there are potential synergies between container checkpointing
work and the need of the VM to have something like per cpuset of per
container swap (as explained in the VM BoFS at OLS, there are unnecessary
OOMs with a common swap).
