Thanks for this pointer.

How live/dead is this OSD effort?  Is it here that people discuss it?  Anybody out there actually implementing this protocol?

I ask because I hear above the 2GiB limit of FAT-16 LFN people don't have a commonly agreed standard for sneaker-netting filesystems between platforms.

At first glance, I'd say T10 OSD is a form of Ftp over Scsi ... which is interesting for efforts like file exchange for peer-to-peer Usb (aka Usb OTG = On The Go).
