> August 26, 2004: IBM brings GPL-infringement charges against SCO. LWN fails to reproduce the posted reiser4 filesystem benchmarks, gets in trouble with Namesys.
Exactly in what kind of "trouble" did LWN get with Namesys? And besides, it's not like others were any more than "underwhelmed" by the reiser4 performance (judging by that thread here on LWN).
I hate to bring up a sore subject, but what's the current status of Reiser4 in the mainline kernel? Does anyone suppose it'll ever make it in now (given the current circumstances)? Thanks!
P.S. I was browsing the kernel source (Vanilla 220.127.116.11) via make menuconfig and noticed that the help screen for ReiserFS refers to www.namesys.com - a URL which doesn't appear to work any longer.
