Description Martin Birgmeier 2022-01-23 09:50:54 UTC
[Note: This is a feature request, not a bug report.]

The feature/improvement consists of extending the exports(5) format to allow multiple host/permission tuples on a single line.

It would be desirable to accommodate the format used by Linux, see, e.g., https://linux.die.net/man/5/exports .

This would bring the following advantages:
- ZFS sharenfs settings could be shared with Linux systems.
- Multiple ZFS sharenfs options could be set in one line, thereby finally solving the long-standing bug #147881.
- In general, the exports(5) would be easier to read (arguable).
