I for one would love to try to help with the Debian packages. At this
point, I have deployed 5 servers that use Debian, XFS, and the CVS
Debian ACL packages.
Source is really not going to cut it, I expect to have additional servers
in the pipe soon, and .deb makes it easy, supportable, scalable.
Now call me stupid, but I could do my own packages, and just submit patches
but would that be counter productive? Or am just insecure about my L33t
developer skills. :)
Personally; I think that the ACL packages should be uploaded to Debian
proper, with some sort of dependency on the XFS kernel patches. Does that
work? To be honest, I am not sure it does, but I hope so. :/
All else failing, having CVS/Deb support to the new ACL tools.
The point is really, XFS and it's support for ACL's is really a amazing,
wonderful thing, and I am grateful, and want to help.
