Andy, I haven't seen/used your software, but I appreciate your work too.
I followed the discussion about your software here and it seemed to be a
very interesting software. I wanted to wait to look at it until I have
the need for such a solution, or until your software gained a feature
(instant file system replication) I like to see used in a specific
scenario here. At Feb 10 you talked about FREP which is very interesting
(and something which I have an use for), but you talked about it as a
"Proof of concept", this is something which typically doesn't get used
on a production system (and the place where I would use it is a very
important system, it needs stable software, not a proof of concept).
Unfortunately not everybody has the time to look at interesting things
if they aren't ready for production use.

I think there are more people than only me which read this list and have
an @freebsd.org address which waited for an official mail from you to
current@ with a "Hey, I have a HA patchset here, and I think it's stable
enough to get integrated into the official source." to look more closely
at it.

It's sad to see you in a mood where you say this will not happen.

And some people may be on holiday...

Maybe we can convince him to take a break and to think a little bit
about it. After a while he maybe reconsiders his decision.


           I'm available to get hired (preferred in .lu).
