Re: OCFS2 certified with EL 6 (RH or Oracle) ?

Last I heard, Oracle were saying something like, they are not going to do the work for RHEL to maintain OCFS2 and ASMLib against the RHEL kernel anymore. SUSE already do this job themselves, so why should Oracle continue to do it for Red Hat? The source is available for RHEL to do it themselves, and by all accounts it is not a big task, so it's really down to RHEL whether that want their customers to have access to OCFS2 and ASMLib. It's not the big-bad-Oracle pulling the plug. If SUSE can do it, which they do, is really a big problem for RHEL?

Of course, we should all assume it is a big conspiracy. It's more fun that way. :)
