I'd suggest not being like that about it. iXsystems has been a primary driving force behind ZFS on FreeBSD for many years, and just because the underlying codebase for OpenZFS is changing to ZoL does not invalidate the contributions that have been made by FreeBSD over the years. Without FreeBSD having taken the lead in integrating and developing ZFS for many years, it is likely that the community wouldn't have had such exposure to ZFS, and it's quite likely that ZoL would not have come to pass.
I said it's not a good reference about the CURRENT (actual maybe wasn;t the right choice of wording) state of OpenZFS/ZoL development, because that discussion is not done here. The forum for OpenZFS development is either Github, the Mailinglist, Leaderships meeting etc.
Dan referred to a announcement post on a forum thats not directly (!) involved with ZFS development from 2017. I tried to point out that a link to the github or leadership meeting is A LOT more usefull.
There is also no need to strawman me and also no reason to call me names like troll.There is no need to be disrespectful in this manner towards the forum. If you don't think the forum is relevant, please feel free to troll elsewhere.
I never said IXsystems input was irrelevant. I never said the contributions from BSD where irrelevant.
I never intended to troll anyone and afaik my previous posts where also not indicative of someone who is only here to troll.
So I think when it comes to "uncalled for" attitude, You and I both have some issues ;)
