Re: [linux-lvm] Working together


we thank you for your invitation to join you with work on the EVMS
project.  Obviously we are interested in the work you are doing and
support it whole heartedly.

We will be happy to help you with any technical assistance you may need
with regard to the Linux LVM system.  However we do not feel able to commit a
developer to work full time on your project for various reasons:

o The LVM team is very small, consisting of three main developers, we
  really do not have much spare man power.

o EVMS, though heading in a direction that we like, is a long way from
  going into production.  Our priority must be with the existing LVM
  system, especially now 0.9 is approaching production level.

o Our new development for the 1.2/2.0 branches has cluster support as
  it's main goal.  This does not seem to be anywhere on your roadmap.

On a more positive note components of our work, such as the standalone
snapshot driver, will undoubtedly benefit both projects.  We will take
the time to ensure that your requirements are taken into consideration
when writing these.
