Jade, your dedication to the topic deserves respect. I have done my own research regarding Hans Reiser and the fate of Reiser4. My conclusion is that the "conspiracy theory" is at least partly true. It requires a more credible name though, such as "conflict of individuals" or "miscommunication problem". Even Torvalds admitted that certain kernel developers are tough to deal with.
On the other hand, many performance tests found on the web give contradicting in formation. Some say Reiser4 is a brilliant technology, others call it nothing more than a failed ambition. That alone is somewhat strange.
Anyway, in a couple of weeks I plan to be running an amazing system - openSuse 11 x86_64, Reiser4, KDE4, Compiz Fusion...
So, it is vital that dedicated supporters / developers for Reiser4 emerge now. IMHO, the idea is too good too let it die.
I would even dedicate my own time to it, unfortunately I have zero knowledge of kernel / file system developing
