BSD and Darwin derivatives Apparently, Matt Dillion has decided to roll his own filesystem for DragonFly. "Here is my initial outline of the filesystem design. It is open for discussion. Please feel to ask questions for anything you do not understand. I do not intend to start coding anything for at least two weeks. There are currently two rough spots in the design. First, how to handle segment overflows in a multi-master environment. Such overflows can occur when the individual masters or slaves have different historical data retention policies. Second, where to store the regeneratable indexes."

Can you (for the sake of your grandchildren) put 64 bit timestamps in the filesystems? atime, ctime and mtime?

Thanks. And pad them until the seconds since epoch will be switched over completely to 64 bits as well..probably a week before the Y2K like problem.
