The question of how to layout and split filesystems was discussed at the
filesystems working group of the devsummit at BSDCan this may.
(http://wiki.freebsd.org/201105DevSummit/FileSystems down to "Filesystem
Layout" near the bottom) Though "one big root" did not garner a huge amount
of support, neither were there particularly compelling arguments against it
(if I remember correctly). It's certainly easier to write an
autopartitioner for, so I don't really blame Nathan for having chosen it
You had got 4 people wanting to go right, 9 to go straight, 2 to go
left, and the driver goes left.
Not at all. Firstly, the "driver" (as you put it) was not at this session, and in fact the installer was imported *before* this session, so the "driver went left" before people were even talking about it. (My reading of the svn log is that the "one big root" was just part of the initial import and not given a whole lot of thought.)
Secondly, it was not a vote; it was more of a straw poll, and no strong opinions were really voiced.
Thirdly, no one was tasked with going off and telling Nathan the results of it, so (since he wasn't there) I find it hard to blame him for failing to go and scour the entire devsummit wiki to see if something relevant to the installer might possibly have happened then.
