This was stupid. SCST is far more mature as a general purpose target. LIO is an iSCSI target that made a token effort to add some hardware drivers to quell concern about it being merged over SCST. They even admit on their wiki the Qlogic driver was based on the SCST implementation. That's fine, it's open source, but what point does reimplementing all the drivers SCST has developed over a decade serve? For all intents and purposes, SCST is a better choice. The development of LIO will fizzle out for anything but iSCSI after it is merged because it doesn't make business sense to RisingTides. Meanwhile, SCST has been used in products and production for years. WTF?
