Dr. Dobb’s Journal has published the first articles in a series on the popular Google Summer of Code. These articles cover the following four projects: ‘Apache Axis2 JMX Front’, ‘CL-GODB: a Common Lisp GO Database Manipulation Library’, ‘Wide Character Support in NetBSD Curses Library’ and ‘gjournal: FreeBSD GEOM Journaling Layer’.

I wonder how difficult it would be to extend that gjournal layer so that it could be used with any supported filesystem. IIRC, Mac OS X theoretically allows such with its VFS journaling layer, and I wonder why more OS projects don’t implement their journaling code in the VFS layer instead of in individual filesystems. *sigh* One of the big disadvantages of being a geek who’s a piss poor coder.
Anyone wanna enlighten me?
