In my post the other day about whether or not work in the ReiserFS file system would continue after Hans Reiser's murder conviction, I mentioned that this being an open source project, it wouldn't be hard for someone else to pick up where others leave off. And as it turns out, that's precisely what's happening: according to folks on the ReiserFS team, work on ReiserFS will continue.
Earlier today I was contacted by Alexander Lymin and Edward Shishkin, two of the developers on the ReiserFS team. Alex wanted to make it clear that "there is no need for drama" -- that work on ReiserFS hasn't stopped, even if they don't have the kind of resources they would like right now.
