Since you've become the dmraid expert, one question that I should know
but I don't is:

Is dmraid a seperate project from dm (device mapper)?

ie. Most kernel projects have their own mailing list, project team,
maintainer, etc.. I had always *assumed* dmraid was a standalone
kernel project, but I've recently seen some posts that imply it is
part of dm.


Yes and No :p

They are both redhat projects but with different authors.
gives you "dmsetup" and was originally done by Joe Thornber
(thornber@xxxxxxxxxxx). See: dmsetup creates the
raid environment, creates the entries (dmraid nodes) in /dev/mapper, etc.

dmraid - activates, deactivates and accounts for the running raid
and it is manned by Heinz Mauelshagen <Mauelshagen@xxxxxxxxxx>. I have a link
to his page at redhat somewhere, but can't put my finger on it at the moment.
Just google his name and redhat and it will pop up.
