Linux Plumbers has approved a file and storage microconference. The overview page is here:


I would like to started gathering in ideas for topics. I have been approached already with a request to cover the copy_range work Zach Brown kicked off at LSF which I think is a great topic since it has impact throughout the stack, all the way up to applications programmers.

A similar request was made to give some time to non-volatile memory devices and the proposed "persistent memory" backed block device and persistent memory file system from Intel. That also seems to fall in nicely with the plumbers mission statement since it clearly will impact everything from the application on down through the kernel.

Last year, we had a good discussion on management of storage (anaconda, yast, libstoragemgt, etc) - that also might be worth giving updates on.

The instructions for submitting ideas will be updated later today at:


If you have topics that you would like to add, wait until the instructions get posted at the link above. If you are impatient, feel free to email me directly (but probably best to drop the broad mailing lists from the reply).
