I was wondering if there was any news on the patches proposed by Ed Plese
last year regarding updates for shadow copies to be better compatible with
Solaris ZFS:


Reviewing the release notes for the upcoming 3.2 release:


I don't see any mention of changes to shadow copy support.

I'm tentatively planning to use the binary module Ed supplied
(http://www.edplese.com/samba-with-zfs.html) but would prefer not to deploy
a configuration providing functionality that wouldn't eventually be
incorporated into mainline Samba.
