Hi Lars,

in my opinion support for 2.4 kernels is necessary. We are using several SLES 
8 in production state. The 0.7 branch of drbd has many features, which make 
production more fearless and reliable. 

For new systems you are right to use 2.6 kernel systems (like SLES 9, by the 
way: where can i get a SLES 9 test version?), but we don't want to migrate 
our current systems to a new kernel (with all the testing and migration 
effort) , only to use the 0.7 branch of drbd.

So i think it is wise to have two stable versions of drbd (one for 2.4 and one 
for 2.6 kernels) at release date of 0.7.

I do the best to help, but i am a IT guy with some cluster knowledge, C 
programming is not my favorite. 

So long
