JFS2 (open-source gpl'ed) is not very hard to port to FreeBSD or DF. I know that becaused I initiated the original effort JFS4BSD; which shortly died due to lack of interest back then.


So will there be plans to continue where JFS4BSD left off ?
That would be a great

As far as my plans are concerned for porting JFS to DF, I am waiting upon two things before I even touch the project:

	    * userland VFS facility for DF
	    * direct-to-dma I/O facility

	The latter item is what I will be working on when I get back
