This is one of the clearest demonstrations of the a FAILURE of open source.
This free open source package with no critical flaws was dropped
(de-standardized is more like it) for quite arbitrary reasons.
To be fair, suse "dropped" Reiserfs as its standard the week before Hans got
arrested because, they said, there was no user base to handle maintenance of
the package. Since Suse was the principal proponent of Reiserfs among
distros this was probably true. Every other distro was probably looking to
Suse for maintenance on this/
OTOH, nobody has pointed out any serious breakage with the package either.
Somebody said it didn't scale well. I have yet to learn just what that means
or how much scaling is necessary for your typical workstation, laptop, or
even small to medium size servers.
I still prefer it. I use Reiserfs on Raid1 and Raid5 as well as regular
disks. I have had to rebuild a tree once or twice after power supply
Latest news on Hans suggests there may be another player involved
in the disappearance of his wife.
