An interview with Hans Reiser...http://kerneltrap.org/node/5654
Ok, done. Now what? Anybody in for writing a plugin? I havent had any experience with filesystems. If there is one who has, they can lead this. Or we can start off with a few discussions.
I don't think I can survive if I get involved in plugins now, but there is a good deal of info I found from the www.namesys.com site, under the Reiser4 tab on the left...
