We’re in!

DRBD has entered a new phase. After being developed out of tree for 9 years, and after an extended review and streamlining phase since March, Phil submitted DRBD to be merged into 2.6.32 release of the Linux mainline kernel. The submission was accepted by block layer maintainer Jens Axboe, who merged DRBD in September, then deferred to the 2.6.33 merge window, and this morning Linus pulled DRBD into his tree.

That makes DRBD an integral part of Linux, starting with the 2.6.33 release expected in a few weeks’ time.

We have something to celebrate.
