I was wondering if there are plans to document and keep the ZFS user library as a reasonably stable API. You really need to ask that on the ZFS lists. Usually Solaris man pages indicate that an API is not stable (assuming) man pages exist. With a few minor exceptions, ZFS in FreeBSD just

Individuals in each of the camps (Free, Open, Net) are frequently deeply invested in their platforms of choice to the point where they identify with them. In addition, many if not most of us are only familiar with one of them. Thus, it isn't really fair to ask us to compare the three. You will

Hi Peter, There really isn't any magic to bringing up a port. You compile it, install it, and then run it until it breaks. Once it breaks you spend a lot of time instrumenting the code to track down what went wrong. Then, depending on the amount of technical insight you have in to the issue, you
