I am posting, wondering why the quotas patch has not found its way into the
1.3.x development series of kernels. I have seen this query asked by a lot of
different people, but not on this newsgroup (apologies if this HAS been
A _LOT_ of people need quotas on their multiuser systems, and surely inclusion
of the patch into 1.3.x is the ideal place for its refinement before a stable
1.4.x comes out.
To those people not requiring quotas, please don't post saying not to include
this feature, as quotas always have been and likely always will be, a config
time option, even with the patch applied.
Inclusion of quotas into the kernel will prevent the need for some poor person
to maintain the patch for the latest 1.3.x kernel (look at ftp://ftp.cistron.nl
/pub/linux), as was the case with the kswap patches until pressure from fans
of the patch got it included into 1.3.34 or thereabouts.
