bhyve VirtFS/9p Completion
This project in partnership with Conclusive Engineering will complete the bhyve VirtFS/9p work with a roadmap for feature competitiveness with QEMU/KVM and Windows WSL2.
You can follow this work on GitHub.
Phase One is the foundation for feature competitive VirtFS/9p support in FreeBSD and illumos with the end goals of reaching feature parity with QEMU/KVM and Windows WSL2, and the ability to run FreeBSD as a WSL2 guest. Fully funded, this work should be complete by January 1st, 2020.
Phase One Budget:
Rework directory file descriptor handling to address directory renaming bug
Add extended attribute support
Phase Two represents new development work to correctly implement extended attribute support and additional known issues.Phase Two Budget: $9,500 USD
Phase Three will build upon the core functionality of Phases One and Two, and its steps only be finalized with their completion. This phase aims to broaden the developer base to address operating system-specific issues and sub-projects that arise.
