If your driver keeps telling you that you're going to arrive in 10 seconds, and it takes a child to start asking questions, maybe you should pay more attention and realize you just might be gettin shanghaied. Are you serious? How much are you paying for that ride? Not really, I was trying

Even if its a thousand +1 following, it seems to me that its perfectly Chris Masons decision... Obviously. Chris seems to have some ideas on when to release the fsck. Yes, and that idea of when has been drifting in the couple week range for about a year. So what do you think you achieve

For fsck, even the stuff I have here does have a way to go before it is at the level of an e2fsck or xfs_repair.  But I do want to make sure that I'm surprised by any bugs before I send it out, and that's just not the case today.  The release has been delayed because I've alternated between a

Heh, what sort of quality are you thinking would develop?  A recovery tool by its nature is picking up the pieces where those pieces are inconsistent.  The nature of those inconsistencies will change with every patch that's more than a cleanup. Seriously? You want to delay the solving of

No, in this case it means we're confident it will get rolled out. On Aug 18th confidence was high enough to declare a possible release that very day. This confidence turned into 7 weeks of silence followed by another 2 week estimate. These confident declarations are why things like mniederle's

Me too. I've got a 9TB filesystem that I can't mount since rebooting during a rebalance. I want to get the fs as repaired as possible, but I am not in a hurry, and I have enough space at present to make a duplicate and play with test versions of the repair. --jeff On Mon, Jun 6, 2011 at 9:41

I've read the entire thread Oops while rebalancing, now unmountable. and it ended without any information about repairing the fs. (the web page wouldn't let me post a reply to that thread tho.) Has there been any info? The fs was working fine until I rebooted. thanks for any info! --jeff
