1) Does your filesystem plan include the ability to grow and shrink a
partition/volume? ie. /home is running out of space so we could run
"shrinkfs" ... on /usr which has a lot of space and "growfs" ... on /home
2) Are you going to do away disklabel stuff and replace it with
something better/easier to use?
3) Is vinum finally gonna die with the new filesystem? ie. volume
manager will be integrated in the new file system, like ZFS?
Seems all of this is handled in one fell swoop with the ZFS design.
Neat 'disklabels' which are dynamically sizable and can be configured
over multiple volumes. And with very little limitation all around.
It's entirely possible to use the same foundations without using the
same file system itself, and this would be good for DragonFly even
before it supports the full ZFS.
