Linux FedFS Implementation Roadmap





3Q CY14

  • Production-ready quality
  • APIs and CLIs stable
  • Users Guide to FedFS on Linux
  • High-level FedFS domain adminstrative tools
  • libnsdb.a available outside of fedfs-utils (man pages, nailed down API)


1Q CY14

  • Production-ready quality
  • APIs and CLIs stable, security review
  • Prototype high-level FedFS domain administration tools and documentation
  • fs_locations_info support in Linux client and server
  • Asynchronous NSDB client API


3Q CY13

  • Beta quality
  • APIs and CLIs becoming stable
  • RPCSEC GSSAPI support in rpc.fedfsd and fedfs admin clients
  • Turn-key admin scripts for setting up domain root and NSDB
  • Junction auditing
  • Search for NCE instead of using NSDB's namingContext
