Note: "permalinks" may not be as permanent as we would like,
direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

8.0rc1 boasts the ability to store the meta data info on a dedicated partition. Before I attempt to migrate the internal meta data at the end (last 128M of the disk used for the drbd device?) to a dedicated partition can anyone comment as to whether or not this is worth it? What are the benefits? What are the drawbacks? Is the 'internal' meta data replicated with the rest of the disk blocks underlying the drbd device?
