Chris Murphy and I are working on a change to switch Fedora's desktop
variants to Btrfs. The plan is for all Fedora desktop variants to
switch over, which means both release-blocking desktops
(Workstation/GNOME and KDE) will use Btrfs by default going forward. I
expect this to be a smooth change, as Btrfs has been a
release-blocking filesystem for many years now (at least since Fedora
20) and has had OpenQA tests to verify its functionality for nearly as
long as OpenQA has been in use in Fedora for testing. And I've
personally been using Btrfs on all my Fedora systems (~5 physical
machines and ~100 virtual machines) since 2015 with no issues.
I would like to have someone from the Xfce SIG sign on and be listed
as a Change owner. My expectation is that there should be no work for
the Xfce SIG to do, as I am taking care of that work centrally for all
variants involved. For all the words that are in the change
proposal, the extent of the change is to flip the settings in
Anaconda to use Btrfs by default on new installations.
Please take a look and let me know what you think. I'd appreciate a
response soon so that I can update it and submit the change proposal
to the Change Wrangler. Ideally, I'd like to submit it later today or
Thanks in advance and best regards,
