STAGE 3 - ZFS PORT
Starting March or April!
I am really quite impressed with Sun's ZFS. People wishing to look at
the Sun ZFS code can find it on LEAF in the OpenSolaris source tree:
I have perused the ZFS code and I am impressed. Very impressed! It is
well documented, nicely modular, and easy to read.
I am tentatively scheduling the port for March. It may occur sooner or
later then that (hopefully sooner), but I just don't know how hard
STAGE 2 is going to be.
I really want to start the port immediately, but I think I am really
going to need userland VFS working for such a port to be able to proceed
at a good clip.
Very exciting stuff indeed, as I read through the documentation and
watched the demos on http://www.opensolaris.org/os/community/zfs/ I
become curious how you are going to implement the NFSv4 like ACL scheme?
Also I am a bit confused in how deeply you planned to use ZFS.
Is this like only root in UFS and the rest in ZFS? How about swap?
