	    * Sistina LVM status (Rod)

		  and off of LVM1.
		- 10's of K-users on LVM1, and at least some are pressing
		  the limits.

		  release; waiting for missing "pvmove" utility.
		  Once complete, will releas 1.0 LVM2.
		- Q: Randy: GPL or commericial
		- A: Rod/John: LVM1 == GPL, LVM2 == Unknown,
		     CVM (clustered): commercial
		- Q: is LVM2 a user-space thing? Kernel patch?
		- A: set of user tools, and a kernel component (maybe)
		     [unknown kernel version requirement]
AR 12/12:	- Rod w/ check & report on kernel requirements of LVM2
		  kernel component, if any.

	    * Lisa was to check on the possibility of patch set
	      for storage.
		- No update available during the meeting.

	    * Randy was going to report on a patch set for tools.
		- Randy/John: "safe to say 'Yes, we'll [OSDL] do that.'"

			1. Includes timer, signals, message queues.
			   not a "full posix" patch set.
			2. development is on track per plan.

		- Comment: Ram: feedback on LKML Re: open POSIX testing
		  was good.  The open project will be a repository for
			POSIX patch set as well as POSIX tests.
AR 12/12:	- Rod & Ram: will send summary info to andyp for inclusion
		  in this week's minutes.

	    * Johannes update on GPL & code at Nokia
		- "light green light, not yet a full green light"
		- working w/ Nokia legal on details, and waiting.

	    * Rod: update on "Feature Set 2 - Networking #1"
		- all features appear to be in 2.5 (pretty sure),
		   but not everything in 2.4.
AR 12/12:	- Rod: will double check the details report back.

	    * Get everyone back in gear.
		- Ram: will send out projects list.
		- Rod: re: patch sets
			 - need to keep beating the bushes for people
			   to sign up for features that they care about.

	    * Venkat: update on IPv6 (FS4, Net2)
		- core ipv6 features accepted into 2.4 and 2.5
		- not a replacement, is an add-on to existing ipv6
		  (ehancements, bugfixes).
		- re: ipsec for ipv6:
			1. submitted, but mainline networking
			   maintainers wanted to have a common
			   infrastructure for ipv4 and ipv6.
			2. ipsec for ipv4 exists in 2.5, but not for ipv6.
		- mobile ipv6 submitted, mainline maintainers waiting
		  for completion of common infrastructure (ipv4 & ipv6)
		  for ipsec.
		- maintainers agreeing to take two components with
		  some changes.
