@StefanTS@george1421 I did recently ask the iPXE guys about network booting… They said something to the effect of - not all filesystems support being accessed over HTTP, and they recommended mounting the ISO as read only via NFS, and then having the boot menu entries point to that.
See that’s where we need a bit of clarification on the OP post. Looking at the additional information provided, I don’t see any reference to an ISO in his commands (even though he did mention it in his OP) What I see from his commands are sending the kernel and init file system to a target machine via a menu item, much like how FOG works. But then he also mentions tasks and the task type table. Which makes me think he might be trying to deploy this to a client machine and not via the FOG ipxe menu as I originally thought.
I’m currently using FOG from the SVN, updating it from time to time in order to get bug fixes and new features. And I’m very pleased that this project has been reactivated in that way since 1 year and a half.
But now I’m concerned about the future of FOG. I have been checking here and there on the wiki, the forum and the news to check what are the plans of the developper team for the future, but without much success. I’ve seen talking about a new version named “fog-too”, but with no informations about what it is and what the roadmap is ?
So, here are my main questions. Would it be possible to know :
What is the roadmap for current SVN branch (1.3). Will it be frozen one time ? Is it going to stay a dev branch ? What are the plans ? And do you have any timing for it ?
Concerning “FOG-too” : what is this version supposed to be ? I saw that it is a complete rewrite of FOG, but in what aim ? Wasn’t FOG 1.00 a complete rewrite too ? What will be its features ? Any roadmap ?
Would it be possible to do a sticky topic in the forum or a page on the wiki about roadmaps, timelines and the future of FOG ?
