Local File System Class to Support Extended Capabilities

Registered by Caitlin Bestler on 2011-09-15

A new class is proposed that would allow a Data Server to define optional enhanced capabilities that the Swift Object Server would be able to use. The first example is to allow a platform to indicate that its Local File System has been configured with self-healing mirrored replication, allowing Swift to configure fewer network replicas.
