I can't speak for the devs, but that's never stopped me before :p Speculative code to directly muck with known-to-be-corrupted data structures is not something that benefits from early releases. It's too easy to cause damage that _can't_ be fixed later, and no amount of warnings will prevent people from trying that code in desperation. Or would you have taken a full image of your 8 drives before trying it the first time? -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe linux-btrfs" in the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
