Fibre Channel over Ethernet

Fibre Channel over Ethernet ( FCoE ) is a computer network technology that encapsulates Fibre Channel frames over Ethernet networks. This allows Fibre Channel to use 10 Gigabit Ethernet networks (or higher speeds) while preserving the Fibre Channel protocol. The specification was part of the International Committee for Information Technology Standards T11 FC-BB-5 standard published in 2009 (As descripted on Wikipedia)

I just orphaned the FCoE packages for Debian. I don’t really have the time and enthusiasm to maintain FCoE any more. The packages may not be in top notch shape, but FCoE as a technology, itself did not see many takers. The popcon stats are low.

In case anyone is interested to takeover the maintenance, there is a pkg- fcoe group on alioth. There are 4 packages that build the stack: lldpad, libhbaapi, libhbalinux and fcoe- utils.
