                           Arthur Tyde (Levanta)

     MapFS is an open source project by Levanta ( that
     implements a Linux filesystem, and utilizes copy-on-write
     functionality and existing Linux filesystems to allow component
     filesystems (or portions thereof) to be combined into a single
     virtual filesystem that appears to be fully writable. This
     functionality significantly eases data sharing between multiple
     machines connected to a shared storage medium (SAN/NAS/Mainframe
     DASD) as data can be optimistically shared between all of the
     machines in a way which is completely transparent to the
     applications running on them.

     Arthur Tyde will speak about why the Linux community is excited
     about MapFS in the greater context of Linux systems management, and
     will highlight specific usage scenarios  for which anyone can start
     working with MapFS today.

     As a Linux kernel-loadable module, MapFS has been developed under
     the GPL since its incarnation in early 2004. MapFS is now being
     made widely available to the Open Source community via SourceForge,
     at <>. It is written in C,
     uses the standard Linux kernel VFS and loadable module interfaces
     for defining new filesystem types to the kernel,and supports (at
     least) kernel versions 2.4.7 to 2.6.13.

     Levanta shall be raffling an Ipod Nano!

 Swag (Give Away) - During the meeting... unusually terrific swag of
     non-predetermined origin will be given out to all attendees at the
