I agree - it's very cool.  It can't be used for bringing up GFS
(chicken/egg), but for permissions on the file system and such, it looks
pretty good.

What's neat is that you don't need centralized management server(s) :)

0005 looks like it statically defines /etc/cluster_rootdir, but I am
probably reading the patch incorrectly.  I don't know PAM well enough to
answer this question, so I need to ask it anyway:
* Is there a way to make the root directory configurable, or are admins
expected to link /etc/cluster_rootdir to /gfs/system (or whatever they

Side note:

I wonder if it would get accepted in a distribution ... that would be
neat.  Since it doesn't actually require cluster software itself (just a
shared file system), then it shouldn't be that hard... in theory :/
