ACK. Revoking my vote for the old feature. I hope that mhddfs is well maintained. Seems to be a pretty good alternative. Still a bit work to set up but much easier and has less disadvantages as LVM.

ACK from me, but without the last additions by Christopher (more complex handling of directory paths based on whether the new parameters to VDR are given).

My primary focus is on the "Resource Directory" but the "Cache Directory" is a nice addition. So far, many plugin developers place resource data in the "Config Directory", just as this directory can easily be retrieved via plugin API.

I agree that, in theory, we would need another directory for "non VDR writable config files" like the svdrphosts.conf file, but I think we should at first take what we have. Future additions are always possible.

Yours
