>(And vps-devel-request to manipulate).

Ok, my friend Chris Dukes wants a LVM-like thing for a free Unix. He's working
with the Linux guys on creating one fairly similar to the one found on AIX.

The question is, is anybody in the BSD world interested in such a thing? It
would allow lots of neat things, like extendable partitions. Mirroring
of logical partitions, etc. 

I'm very sure that they would like help with their project, and if some *BSD
guys get involved with it, issues for us would be diminished (with respect to
re-using their code in our kernels). 

Is anybody interested? If so, email Chris Dukes ( and
let him know. Signing up on the mailing list would be a nice bonus as well.
Chris is doing lots of design work now.

Oh, Chris has a 4/260, but he has sc scsi. (sigh, mumble, cough cough, prod ;)
