Parent article: Whither btrfsck?
I can understand Chris's reservations in releasing the code. And, as an end user, I can also understand the frustration in not having -- and continuing to not have -- a working fsck. But I have to say that some pot shots were taken at Chris that I felt were entirely inappropriate. So, as a user who, himself, is frustrated at not having a full-fledged fsck (indeed, that's the only thing keeping me from recommending btrfs as the FS for a new in-house product), I have to say that ascribing ulterior motives to Chris for its delay is unfair, uncool, and unprofessional.
So, while I'm glad to see this topic highlighted by Jon, I do hope that the original accuser would try to set aside his frustration, and, instead, continue to work with the community in testing of code, generating bug reports where appropriate, and other things that we, as users, can contribute.
