Hi Damien,

Currently there are no filesystems in DragonFly that support ACLs but the VFS code seems to be there.
We just need someone with the time and the interest that actually does it ;-)

NOTE: Moving this to Bug as Submit is for patch submits.

Bug #2656: Needs acl to migrate our servers

* Author: ferney
* Status: In Progress
* Priority: High
* Assignee: 
* Category: Feature request
* Target version: 4.2.x
Hi all, 
im member of MATHRICE (http://www.mathrice.fr & http://math.cnrs.fr) a group of System manager in mathematics laboratory in  france. 
We have a lot of computers on 5 cities and would migrate our storage (data, VM disk... ) on 8 redondants DragonFly servers. 
But we have a lot of services of web hosting for our users and
 we use actually fACLs 
on nfs htdocs directory. 
So we have migrate a lot of services but we cant replace our linux servers
cause we need this functionality. 
I think that to make hammer an attractive actual file server, it 's a lack to not have fACLs
or a support of them on nfs share. 

Can you tell me if it could be a priority for you to incorporate this on Dragonfly 
or if we need to maintain 2 files nfs servers in // ? 
I think samba need it and it was great to have setfacl / getfacl and support of fACLs on nfs share. 

We have discuss this with f. Tigeot and he said me to write this first bugtrackers
Thanks a lot  (and sorry for my poor english ;-))
