For Proxmox users basically nothing changes, you install another plugin.
All the components will be in the public PM repo.  I'd say LINSTOR is in
good shape. I will release the first version of the PM Plugin somewhen
next week.

What is missing/in the working is a final upgrade path from DM to
LINSTOR. If you start from scratch, I would already use LINSTOR. In my
tests it already feels a lot better than DM ever was.

Currently in the working.
