So we're getting close to having a working fsck tool so I wanted to
take the opportunity to talk about the future of BTRFS in Fedora.
1) GRUB support. Edward Shishkin did GRUB1 patches for BTRFS a
ago, but they were obviously never merged upstream and were also not
included into fedora. These would either need to be cleaned up and
put into our grub package, or we'd need to put /boot on a different
filesystem. I personally hate the idea of having a non-btrfs /boot
partition but I'm not the one in charge of GRUB.
Perhaps if we are going to the pain of getting btrfs patches working
and stable, we could just look at moving to grub2?
So what are your thoughts? Thanks,
Sounds good. I'd suggest filing a feature page already and getting it
setup with all the status, etc. That can be a central point for
coordinating that effort.
