iSCSI target for kfreebsd
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
kfreebsd misses an iSCSI target so far. This would be an useful addition
to kfreebsd and its ZFS support. Indeed many people I encountered so far
which were trying out kfreebsd ask for ZFS and occasionally for iSCSI
support as well.
The only packages available in kfreebsd right now are
iscsitarget-(dkms|source). As you may derive from their names, those
packages are not at all useful for kfreebsd as they are tightly linked
with the Linux kernel and exist on kfreebsd only because no one cared to
implement "architecture: linux-all" so far.
FreeBSD has two iSCSI targets available: "iscsi-target"
(/usr/ports/net/iscsi-target) and "istgt" (/usr/ports/net/istgt/) (learn
more on ). I tried to compile the latter and it works out of the box
on kfreebsd. Therefore istgt could provide an iSCSI target for Debian
without too much effort.
I can package it for Debian and provide a (hopefully) clean package I
think, but I don't want to maintain it all alone as I'm loosely
interested in kfreebsd only. I provided a patch for zfsutils recently
(thanks Aurelien for shipping it by the way!) and I ported my other
package to kfreebsd, but I don't use it for anything productive (yet).
Therefore I'd like to ask you (read: debian-bsd mantainers) whether you
are interested to maintain this package as you do for similar other
packages (e.g. ). Moreover someone would need to upload (i.e.
sponsor) it, as I have no upload permissions to Debian.
with kind regards,
