SubjectRe: AdvFS released under GPLv2
Its good to hear from AdvFS fans. :-)

In case its not clear, this is a GPLv2 technology release, not an actual
port to Linux. We're hoping that the code and documentation will be
helpful in the development of new file systems for Linux that will
provide similar capabilities, and perhaps used to make tweaks to
existing file systems. We'll get the tests posted soon.
