    Default KQ ZFS Linux Is No Longer Actively Being Worked On

    Phoronix: KQ ZFS Linux Is No Longer Actively Being Worked On

    Remember KQ Infotech? KQ Infotech was the Indian company that ported the ZFS file-system to Linux as an out-of-tree kernel module (after deriving the code from the LLNL ZFS Linux work) and KQ's interesting methods of engagement in our forums. The company was successful in delivering an open-source ZFS module for Linux that performed semi-well and didn't depend upon FUSE (the file-systems for user-space module) like other implementations. However, this ZFS Linux code appears to no longer be worked on by KQ Infotech...

    Open source code can't die. If it has technical merits and no legal issues, it will be picked up again by somebody. If it either lacks technical merits or has legal issues, it will probably stay dormant. But it'll never die as long as the code is available for download.

    Code that nobody is interested in and that nobody maintains, IS DEAD.
    This is more dead than MurderFS.

    KQI version may be dead, but if you think zfs on linux is dead, think again! It lives on zfsonlinux.org!

    Indeed. It appears the ZFS port was started by the guys at LLNL (only picked up and moved forward by KQI) and they've never slowed down with it. It's under active development right now.

    Also, there's lots of interest in it.
