Bug#1053214: RFP: lustre -- distributed parallel, scalabe, high-performance, high-availability file system

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
X-Debbugs-Cc: debian-devel@lists.debian.org, debian-science@lists.debian.org

* Package name    : lustre
  Upstream Author : Whamcloud
* URL             : www.lustre.org
* License         : GPLv2
  Programming Lang: C
  Description     : Distributed parallel, scalable, high-performance file system

The Lustre file system is an open-source, parallel file system that
supports many requirements of leadership class HPC simulation

Lustre is used in a number of science institutes (including mine), so
having a Debian package would be quite handy for us.

Their distribution already come with some Debian files (and they
actually build Ubuntu packages), but they are not compliant to Debian
Policy, and they are very outdated (source format 1, declared standards
version 3.8.2), depending on tools that are not in Debian anymore
(dpatch). However, for the kernel modules, it is possible to build them
with dkms support.

The package includes both the client and the server side. However,
upstream builds the server package only for RHEL, already even just
having the client packages for Debian would be a big win.

Best regards
