Two days ago f2k7, the OpenBSD Filesystem Hackathon, started in Vienna, Austria. 14 developers from the americas and europe have gathered in a building of the university of Vienna to discuss future directions of filesystem related works and actually start on it. This includes work around ffs2 in order to support partitions and filesystems bigger than 1TB, NFS cleanup, and work on improving the buffer cache.
At this hackathon we also have some visiting developers who work on topics not directly related to filesystems like rthreads, 10Gb drivers and SMP.
This hackathon wouldn't have been possible without the generous help of our users. Many of whom donated money or hardware and some of whom even managed to convince some companys to lend us some nice big servers. In particular I'd like to thank Stephan A. Rickauer of FOSS@UZH, Jean-Gerard Pailloncy, Dalco, Dell, GeNUA, LSI, Mobilkom Austria and Transtec.
