and foremost, I'd need a statement that btrfs is now reliable
enough (apparently you're hunting for exactly that) and also a
comparison with ext4 proving that btrfs is better. And not just because
it is new and cool and conceptually great - I want real-world facts.

perception. I understand where you're coming from, but this isn't the
kind of response that's helpful. If the perception is to change, we need
actual testing and corresponding bug reports if there are any.
I would tend to disagree, "50%". While having proof of "it's

Good grief he ASKED for TESTERS. What was so hard to understand about that?
You (either of you) don't want to test something? Fine, so don't test
it. Other people will test it and then at some point you can enjoy the
finished polished results of their testing.
It doesn't require you to say "I'm not testing that because it's still
in testing." Well, duh, yes it is, by definition.
If he had said "We're switching the next version of opensuse to default
to btrfs right now." there would be a reason to complain. He didn't say
anything like that.
