Re: Berkeley is good stuff!

Hi Chris,

most interesting. Hmmm, instead of taking the trouble of upgrading to any new
Berkeley version I think I'll rather switch to fsfs for our old reps.

BTW, FreeBSD 5.x/6.x has a filesystem snapshot-option. It can most probably be
used to get "hotbackups" with fsfs. I don't know if Linux/OS X has something
similar.

Best regards

Soren 'Frank'
