Submission DRBD to be Included in Linux Kernel 2.6.33->

Anonymous Coward writes: "The long-time Linux kernel module for block replication over TCP, DRBD, has been accepted as part of the main Linux kernel. Amid much fanfare and some slight controversy, Linus as pulled the DRBD source into the 2.6.33 tree, expected to release February, 2010. DRBD has existed as open source and available in major distros for 10 years, but lived outside the main kernel tree in the hands of LINBIT, based in Vienna. Being accepted into the main kernel tree means better cooperation and wider user accessibility to HA data replication."
