ZFS in Debian

Somehow I hear the "ha-ha!" soundbite of Nelson from The Simpsons when I think of this topic: ZFS is coming to Debian! Of course, it will be arriving there via the FreeBSD kernel Cool


There are apparently some "license wars" between GPL and CDDL (the GPL doesn't allow inclusion of CDDL code) so this is slowing down or precluding the inclusion of ZFS in GPL-only systems. Fortunately, the BSD license does not impose restricions on the use of code.

Unfortunately again, the "FreeBSD" portion of the Debian effort is often not even mentioned.
