      I hope that this new technology will be well developed and the integrated as possible choice to manage file system.

        I would like to see this promising technology spend at least 1 release cycle in staging ... just to see how well it works and plays with others.

          it's a file system module, wtf is there to "play with others", you either use it or you don't.

                Given that SSDs are devices that will be able to make use of this, it will be interesting to see what programs that need io speed can do with it.

                    You make a big assumption that this code will not interact with anything else in the Linux ecosystem.

                    Why not be safe than sorry and follow Linus' own established rules for new features; test it in "staging" for at least 1 release? What is the big rush to mainline this code? Nobody will die tomorrow, the Earth will not stop rotating or even orbiting the Sun tomorrow if the Linux kernel does not have this code. Or perhaps you are a "flat Earther"?

                    Seriously, Linus has railed in the past on others IN PUBLIC for not soaking new code in staging. Remember the KDBUS incident and Linus' railing on GK-H over that? Yet in this case Linus goes about tossing his own rules out the window for himself. Granted, that's an apples & oranges comparison right there, but the point is simple, "The same rules should apply to all involved in the project when it comes to new features. No exceptions."

                    Or perhaps you would prefer that some (Linus in this case) ought to be more equal that others?

                    As the top-level code maintainer you can argue that Linus IS more equal than others, but that suggests he could show less regard for the project's "new features" rules whenever he pleases rather than behave in the same way that he demands of others in the project. Said another way, "Do as I say, not as I do." Are you ok with that sort of attitude?

                    Where is the good leadership concept of "Lead by example" in this case? Good leaders demand of themselves what they demand of others.

                    So ... if zonefs starts to cause problems for users, then the only person Linus can flip off & rail against regarding those problems would be himself, right?

                    That would to be fun to read in the LKML. Linus gets egg on his face only to admit that he smacked himself in the face with that egg.
