DRBD is not a college student hobby project. It is backed by a company, 
LINBIT. Which develops the software for you to use freely and unrestrictedly. 
You get stuck configuring it or run into an issue, you can use this list. 
Which is a great resource and also there for free. But if the list doesn't 
help you, give us a call or drop us an email. Get for-fee consultancy. Or 
enterprise-grade support. And thereby finance the further development of 
DRBD, for the benefit of everyone. Deal?
