RAnsrID continued

Our group is now in HackWeek 6, quite a few weeks delayed after all other groups at SuSE. I will use the time to (finally!) continue work on RAnsrID - see also my initial blog entry. The project source is hosted on gitorious.

The basic redundancy routines are all working already, next is a usable test suite, then run-time configuration management (live adding and removing disks, live reconstruction w/o repair in the read error case).

I doubt I will reach a final version 1.0 I can recommend to use, but it will hopefully be close.

skierpage [skierpage.com]: typo, project name

The project page says "Multi-disk spawning media libraries"
I think that's "spanning"? If so, better phrased as "media libraries that span multiple disks".

Also, it's always a good idea for the second sentence of blog posts to be the project summary: "Redundant Array of Non-Striped Really Independent Disks is a RAID-lookalike multi-disk userspace block device for storing large amounts of data." The RAnsrID marketing department will appreciate the help ;-)

Oops, you're right, of course, thanks!
