projects going on in the NFS space, one of them
is NFSv4 namespace extensions. The two namespace

that we did earlier this year was posted a few

how the referral functionality can be leveraged
to create a very basic global namespace.
Once the code is back in OpenSolaris,it will
be available for anyone interested in extending

The timing of these OpenSolaris projects is
quite nice considering the renewed momentum
