Subject Re: zone for testing forrest
Date Thu, 30 Jun 2005 11:29:36 GMT
out of curiousity, is there something that explains what a "zone" is
at a higher level than the "solaris-zones" doc that David pointed to
above?  Just an explanation of what it's for, is it a testbed? live
demo site? or what?  What are/will be the benefit to non-committers if
any?
Thanks,
--tim
