We want another general purpose file system that
supports a continuous snapshotting.
There are many function for recovering error on filesyste,
journaling, softupdate or RAID in hardware layer.
However, human errors are not covered such function,

A continuous snapshotting is a solution that avoid such disaster.

We will hold a BOF session in Linux Symposium Ottawa June, 2007,
titled "Filesystem support for continuous snapshotting". Please join
to discuss you're interested in snapshotting.
