maintain. In Kirk's case the main problem is a lack of in-code
documentation of the very complex algorithms he uses in softupdates
coupled with his propensity to hack up other parts of the system to
crowbar pieces in (like the background bitmap writing code, the snapshot
code, the major reliance on the precise actual implementation of other
pieces of VFS system in order to be able to assume certain side effects
which are also not documented anywhere in the code, and so forth).


did you have plans to support UFS2 ?

this will simplify the backport (?) of 5.x, 6.x installations to DFBSD.

Also, some of features are interesting (ACL mostly).

The snapshots are very cool, but i never get a stable system with that and
so, i don't care about it.
