Default OpenSVC clustered service manager available

From the freebsd announce mailing list:

Dear FreeBSD Community,

OpenSVC has is now available for FreeBSD.

OpenSVC is a GPLv2 project automating the low-level operations needed
1/ to bring up system resources (virtual machine container, ip, disk
groups, filesystem mounts, application launchers) on a node and 2/ to
replicate data to secondary nodes (in local or remote sites). OpenSVC
can be coupled to a tiers heartbeat daemon to form a full failover
clustering stack.

OpenSVC offers a simple service start/stop/status/sync* command line

OpenSVC can be deployed to drive all types of service on all major
operating systems, and drive best-of-breed replication strategies
available on users' sites : rsync+snap, zfs, netapp, emc, drbd.

Generalized usage of OpenSVC brings easy group-actions in an
heterogeneous datacenter, like those needed for disaster recovery plan
activation, or a more localized outage.

The FreeBSD port is fresh and done by newcomers in this world, so
Community comments are welcome, particularly on the following topics:

1/ 'tbz' packaging.
2/ Only zfs pools are supported as "disk group" resources. Support for
GEOM disk aggregations might be added, if there is Community interest.
3/ Jail support. OpenSVC does not care about provisioning, but I hope
hope I got the start/stop stuff right.
4/ Opensvc startup script.
5/ The port has been done on FreeBSD 8. Feedback on what breaks on older
release is welcome.

You don't need to be a genius to debug a pf.conf firewall ruleset, you just need the guts to run tcpdump
