Re: [Bacula-devel] Remaining dual changer problems


Another way to look at this would be to start phasing out Bacula's knowledge
of physical location entirely and deal only with volume names. Autochangers
are getting smarter, and it really isn't Bacula's business how the changer
organizes it's volumes as long as the right volume appears where it's
needed. 

That approach would permit keeping the mtx-changer syntax the same, and
implementing the volume->slot mapping inside the existing script shell. That
would permit putting logic into mtx-changer to do simple mappings for
simple-minded changers, or (in the case of more sophisticated changers, hand
off to a library manager application).
