Default nfs4acl?

Our site is in the process of moving a lot of our file servers to NFS4
and we would certainly be interested in NFS4 ACL support in Ubuntu.

I plan to have a look a the source supplied by Timo to see how it works
for us. If it works fine, is it a requirement that the package go into
Debian first or can we just go to Ubuntu to begin with?

Default nfs4acl?

Hey Paul!

A long time ago, I looked at what it would take to enable NFS4 ACL in
Ubuntu. Not a lot much, basically:

1. Package nfs4-acl-tools from
http://www.citi.umich.edu/projects/nfsv4/linux/ . Should be fairly
straightforward, but it might be too late as we are past feature freeze.
Maybe if we ask nicely we can get an exception and have it uploaded to
universe.

2. Optionally, have the acl package (set/getfacl) patched to support
NFS4 ACL. As you may know already. NFS4 ACL are not quite compatible
with the POSIX one, so this is slightly risky. There is an IETF
draft[1] that propose a mapping, and I believe this is what the UMich
patch to the acl userland tools implements.


I would absolutely love to do the work above, except I am out of time
for that If someone take care of it, I will try and make time for
testing, promised.

I've done that already (without the gui though, just like on fedora):

http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=399502

maybe it should be uploaded to lucid now?

I believe universe has not gone into feature freeze yet, so yes, why
not! Let us know if you do, and I will make time to test it in the next
couple of weeks. Also, would you consider getting the package uploaded
to Debian, if you have not done so already?

As for the acl patch for get/setfacl, I think it might be too late to
push these in Lucid. Plus, main is in FF, so this will have to wait for
lucid+1 anyway. There is a Debian bug on the topic, #290874, that has
further information.
