Please Jos, ping Jeff so he writes and some quotes about btrfs in the announcement, for instances. An article for would be also important. Please help him on this.

For social media it would be also very important to have something about btrfs.

Provisional plan to promote btrfs testing:

  • btrfs should be part of all our communication from now on... hackaton, beta, RC's, etc
  • make it central to the testing story for the beta
  • do a sneak peek (needs input from Jeff)
  • do an openSUSE team blog on it
  • try to get a SUSEcom blog on it
  • (of course, it'll have the popup in Beta)

Emailed this to Jeff, asked his input on how to promote btrfs: what are benefits; what workloads/hardware benefits most.

promoted today a btrfs link over our social media. No feedback from Jeff yet so can't do too much for the Beta Pizza Hackaton announcement... Will make some stuff up ;-)

mailed Jeff again. Story is scheduled, if he has further feedback we can probably implement it, if not - so be it.

Asked him also about doing a sneak peek of btrfs for 13.1.

I have also been promoting BTRFS news, openSUSE related or not, over our social media channels. For example:

note that we have collegues commenting in there, not always positive.
Asked Jeff to reply there and give some update on his argument that ext4 is less mature than btrfs. Would be great to have a public source for that.
