It wasn't a mistake to accept xfs, xfs is a great piece of technology.
I haven't monitored their progress, but I am sure that they are
diligently fixing bugs as they are reported. Guys, making a filesystem
stable is hard, and once every known test passes without crashing, there
is no substitute for masses of users finding bugs not hit by the tests,
and getting them fixed. My point is merely that Hellwig could go and
find flaws in the filesystem he worked on, XFS, if he chose to. I think
he should.
