|Subject:||XFS status update for September 2010|
|Date:||Wed, 6 Oct 2010 05:41:52 -0400|
Mainline activity has been rather low in September while with only two more fixes going into the 2.6.36 release candidates after the large merge activity in August. Development for the next merge window has been more active. The largest item was the inclusion of the metadata scalability patch series, which provides very large speedups for parallel metadata operations. In addition a new ioctl to punch holes and convert the whole to an unwritten extent was added and a small number of cleanups also made it into the tree. Patches to add support for 32bit wide project ID identifiers and using group and project quotas concurrently were posted to the list and discussed but not yet included. Userspace development has been rather quited again, with a single fix committed to xfsprogs and xfsdump each. The xfstests test suite grew a new test case and received a few additional fixes. Last but not least the XFS Users Guide  was updated with various factual corrections and spelling fixes.  http://xfs.org/docs/xfsdocs-xml-dev/XFS_User_Guide//tmp/e... -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe linux-kernel" in the body of a message to email@example.com More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html Please read the FAQ at http://www.tux.org/lkml/
