[Lustre-devel] [Lwg] Splitting up Lustre and LNET RPMs

I suspect that LWG is too small a list to ask such questions. I've added hpdd-discuss and lustre-devel to the CC list.

I'm not against it in principle, but I have no idea how much work this will be to implement.

Cheers, Andreas

What does the community think about splitting the LNET build out of Lustre as a separate set of (source and binary) RPMs?
This would make it easier/faster to build, install, and upgrade Lustre in existing installations without changing things we don't need to. It would also make it easier to re-use LNET in other projects, and make it easier for unusual users to maintain a customized LNET.
I have no idea how this might affect landing in mainstream kernel.
Thoughts / opinions?
