Yes, that's just the thing I'm talking about, so it looks like I have
indeed be reinventing something. (The jail scheduling work of cdjones
it something else I'm interested in, but for another time).
Now the question becomes: how much jail work is out there, and what's
the likelihood is it seeing the light of day in a released kernel? I
hate to be going about coding stuff that's been done before (well,
actually I enjoy coding it but you know...), but I only ever see
snippets of jail work mentioned here and there and nothing ever seems to
get anywhere official. I figured the place to talk about this was the
freebsd-jail mailing list, but it seems to be mostly for stuff like
"getting app X to work in a jail" or "the current jail rc scripts have
this or that deficiency." That's why I cross-mailed to freebsd-hackers
- maybe more appropriate there?
Where's the secret place people really go to communicate this kind of
thing? I've done a lot of work in the general jail-like area, and while
much of it it the same as others' I'd like to share what isn't. Of
course, with other people's jail-related projects staying on the
sidelines so long - and that by those with "@freebsd.org" stature - one
wonders if there's a point. I don't mean to sound down on anything,
just wondering what the state of the "jail community" is. Or where it is.
