NetBSD-SoC: Implement Ext3 file system support
What is it?
The aim of the project is to provide ext3 support on NetBSD.
At this time NetBSD supports only ext2 or ext3 with a clean journal, so in principle the focus of the project is to provide journaling support for ext2.
I have created a blog for people interested in my activity on this project and it's located at
I'll start blogging as soon as possible.

- _April 21, 2008: Community Bonding Period -- Students get to know mentors, read documentation, get up to speed to begin working on their projects.
- May 26, 2008: Students begin coding for their GSoC projects; Google begins issuing initial student payments
- July 7, 2008: Mentors and students can begin submitting mid-term evaluations.
- July 14, 2008: Mid-term evaluation deadline; Google begins issuing mid-term student payments provided passing student survey is on file.
- August 11, 2008: Suggested 'pencils down' date. Take a week to scrub code, write tests, improve documentation, etc.
- August 18, 2008: Firm 'pencils down' date. Mentors, students
and organization administrators can begin submitting final evaluations to
- September 1, 2008: Final evaluation deadline; Google begins issuing student and mentoring organization payments provided forms and evaluations are on file.
Mandatory (must-have) components:
- journaling metadata and/or file data
- compliance with the Linux journal
Optional (would-be-nice) components:
- online resizing would be nice
man && google
As you may assume at this point the implementation will be based on the existing Wasabi Write-Ahead Physical Block Logging
