Oracle so far appears to be pursuing a general policy of slowly ceasing
all open source development that Sun was doing. I'm sure ZFS will
continue to exist in some form, but I expect the Oracle version of it to
become a commercial software product you have to license.
Oracle is not an open source company and appears to have little to no
interest in becoming one.
