Re: ext3cow FS? // Secure Delete, Compliance

 I hadn't looked at ext3cow before, but maybe I should have. It may be 
the answer to Dave's prior question about compliance security for 
customer files : 

[[ ext3cow has a very specific goal -- providing snapshots. The 
motivation seems to be very 
[[ business/regulatory-compliance-related, as evidenced by the 
publication list related to ext3cow 
[[  (Building Regulatory Compliant Storage Systems, Secure Deletion 
for a Versioning File System, 
[[ Verifiable Audit Trails for a Versioning File System, Limiting 
Liability in a Federally Compliant File 
[[  System, etc.) But snapshots are a generally useful feature outside 
the world of compliance, 
[[ as anyone who's ever accidentally deleted a few days' work on a 
programming assignment can attest.
