Yes, of course. Though they may consider that I did I bad copy/adaptation of what have already bee doing. I am using Debian (now using Ubuntu due to hardware issues) for more than 12 years and doing packages since 6 years (I make a package of every piece of software I have to distribute locally), so I thing I may help if I am asked > > Also their svn repository for what patches they use for things > svn://svn.debian.org/svn/pkg-lustre Yes, I suppressed nearly all of those patches, mainly because I did not know if they were needed or may cause problems with lustre 1.8.0 > > It might be prudent to let them know what you plan on doing for debian > support so you can not step on each others toes. It is OK. I mainly want to help, at the same time that I keep the control of a very important piece of software for us, so I can package myself if needed and not having to depend of others work, which I, of course, appreciate very much. No intention of substituting others.
