3 Thanks for your interest in contributing to the aoetools. The best
4 way to submit proposed changes is in plain-text "patches". These
5 patches are generated by the diff program.
7 Patches should be clean (to the point and easy to read) and should do
8 one thing. Send multiple patches if necessary. Patches should be
9 generated with "diff -uprN" if possible, and should be designed to be
10 applied with "patch -p1".

15 The aoe-mkdevs and aoe-mkshelf scripts are expected to work with
16 special device files forever, but the aoe-discover script will likely

18 /dev/etherd/discover. The same goes for aoe-interfaces. For that
19 reason, there is no runtime interface for giving aoe-discover an
20 alternative to /dev/etherd at runtime. Instead, the device directory
21 is set once and for all by make. That way, the user interface won't
22 change or become obsolete when aoe-discover stops using
