Default Bug#616690: RFH: nfs-utils -- NFS support files common to client and server

Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

I request assistance with maintaining the nfs-utils package.

The package description is:
Use this package on any machine that uses NFS, either as client or
server. Programs included: lockd, statd, showmount, nfsstat, gssd
and idmapd.

This is co-maintained by Anibal Monsalve Salazar and the kernel team
(mostly represented by me). Currently we are not keeping up with bug
reports and I don't think we have sufficiently broad experience with
NFS to deal effectively with them.

Ben.

I'm willing to help out. What bugs or area do you want me to prioritise on?

Cheers

Luk

I think the most urgent would be reported regressions from lenny to
squeeze.

I had a look at the outstanding bugs. Unless there are kerberos or nfs4
related regressions, there don't seem to be real regressions reported.

The issues that are reported quite a lot are problems related with the
init scripts though. Do you mind if I try to come up with some init
script changes that make sure depended on services are tested for
availability and services don't hang unnecessary?

I have the feeling that changes there would be welcomed most by our
userbase as I can read quite some frustration in the bug reports.

Cheers

Luk

PS: The reason so many bugs are reported related to initscripts very
probably are a result from the different behaviour of the init system
(running things in parallel) and hotplug system (background handling if
possible) and/or cleaning up of other init scripts which cause faster
execution of our init scripts.

Hello Luk,

That will be appreciated.

Thank you,

I just realised I still haven't replied to this. Sorry for the delay.

So you've done some of this, but I don't think you've gone far enough
yet.

Per #623377, I think we need to split nfs-common.init into at least:
1. rpc.statd (start in S, stop never; doesn't require /usr)
2. rpc.idmapd and rpc.gssd (start in 2345, stop in 016; requires /usr)
Although mrvn reckoned idmapd might be needed for mounting in /usr.
Maybe we should move everything from /usr to /.

The whole idea of treating network configuration as a single service
($network) is broken. For now, we just have to say that mounting at
boot requires that the network is configured as auto and not hotplug.
Really, it ought to be possible to define that NFS mounts depend on
specific networks being available (though unmounting when the network
has already gone away is... painful).

Ben.
