+EROFS is still working in progress, thus it is not suitable
+for all productive uses. play at your own risk :)
+
+TODO List:
+ - add the missing error handling code
+ (mainly existed in xattr and decompression submodules);
+
+ - finalize erofs ondisk format design (which means that
+ minor on-disk revisions could happen later);
+
+ - documentation and detailed technical analysis;
+
+ - general code review and clean up
+ (including confusing variable names and code snippets);
+
+ - support larger compressed clustersizes for selection
+ (currently erofs only works as expected with the page-sized
+ compressed cluster configuration, usually 4KB);
+
+ - support more lossless data compression algorithms
+ in addition to LZ4 algorithms in VLE approach;
+
+ - data deduplication and other useful features.
+
+erofs-mkfs (preview version) binaries for i386 / x86_64 are available at:
+
+ https://github.com/hsiangkao/erofs_mkfs_binary
+
+It is still in progress opening mkfs source code to public,
+in any case an open-source mkfs will be released in the near future.
+
+
+Code, suggestions, etc, are welcome. Please feel free to
+ask and send patches,
+

+ linux-erofs mailing list <linux-erofs@lists.ozlabs.org>

+ Chao Yu <yuchao0@huawei.com>
