I'm not sure about this change, since 'zfsonlinux' is more specific
than 'openzfs' and at least currently, Guix only supports ZFS on Linux
(I don't think there's a Hurd front-end?) and zfsonlinux.org seems to
be still in use (there's a new zfs release there for Mar 23 2022).
Is there some upstream document about zfsonlinux -> openzfs?

Greetings,
Maxime.

I’ll try to dig it up, but I want to say about a year ago, right 
before FreeBSD swapped over to using it (instead of their own fork 
from the Illumos/OpenSolaris upstream), they changed the 
organization.

So it looks like the github repository was renamed as things 
merged in from FreeBSD, but the ZFSonLinux project is still extant 
as a Linux-specific resource for ZFS issues: 
https://zfsonlinux.topicbox.com/groups/zfs-discuss/T13eedc32607dab41/zol-repo-move-to-openzfs

I’m ok with dropping this part of the patch. I’d only added it to 
align the github repo (which is openzfs) with the project home 
page. I think it still makes sense to do so, but I’m not terribly 
invested in having this patch applied one way or the other.

Not sure which home page would be the best (the general cross-platform
home page, or the Linux-specific home page), but I'd guess that as
someone interested in OpenZFS you would know the best here. 
Summarised: maybe keep the patch?

I’m extremely comfortable leaving this up to project leads, 
depending on what they think is most useful for the overall user 
base. My thinking on the subject is that the proposed URL is, in 
general, more useful than the previous one for finding 
information, aligns with the repository name (and should raise 
fewer eyebrows as a result), and who knows, maybe some day ZFS is 
ported to GNU Hurd so the Linux focus would be less 
appropriate. ;)

But right now this is Linux specific, so pointing at Linux 
specific resources also makes sense.
