[cgl_discussion] [Fwd: [ogfs-dev]EVMS 2.0 with cluster support]

EVMS has been released as a clustered volume manager.  It could address
things like cluster wide device naming and could replace the notion of
pools in OpenGFS.  Does anybody on the cgl_discussion list have some
bandwidth to evaluate this?
