I am one of the contributor forgluster-block
<https://github.com/gluster/gluster-block> project, and also I
contribute to linux kernel andopen-iscsi <https://github.com/open-iscsi>
NBD was around for some time, but in recent time, linux kernel’s Network
Block Device (NBD) is enhanced and made to work with more devices and
also the option to integrate with netlink is added. So, I tried to
provide a glusterfs client based NBD driver recently. Please refergithub
issue #633 <https://github.com/gluster/glusterfs/issues/633>, and
good news is I have a working code, with most basic things @nbd-runner
While this email is about announcing the project, and asking for more
collaboration, I would also like to discuss more about the placement of
the project itself. Currently nbd-runner project is expected to be
shared by our friends at Ceph project too, to provide NBD driver for
Ceph. I have personally worked with some of them closely while
contributing to open-iSCSI project, and we would like to take this
project to great success.
Now few questions:
1. Can I continue to usehttp://github.com/gluster/nbd-runneras home for
this project, even if its shared by other filesystem projects?
* I personally am fine with this.
2. Should there be a separate organization for this repo?
* While it may make sense in future, for now, I am not planning to
start any new thing?
It would be great if we have some consensus on this soon as nbd-runner
is a new repository. If there are no concerns, I will continue to
contribute to the existing repository.
