noone responded, because it's way out of development,
aincent and unsupported, it's dead. Linux does not
have filesystem snapshots :( If you read what's on
the above pages you'll see the warnings about it
being out of date, old, stale, alpha, and
They are 3/4 year old alpha development stuff.

That's a NAS, that page does not even mention the word linux,
though it does mention ext2 as one filesystem it supports. I know
of many NAS's that support snapshots. I wan't linux to support
