Who says kernel developers don’t have a sense of humour? Pass the above to the installer and you’ll have the option of Fedora onto Btrfs, the linux file system of the future. Probably. I love/miss Volume Shadow Copy on Windows so am looking forward to something similar on Fedora.
Edit: Several people have pointed out this is an anaconda option, not a kernel one. Though I did point out that this was being passed to the installer, not the kernel.
In other news Jakub, maintainer of GCC in Fedora, made a brilliant post to Fedora-devel. Its great to see maintainers doing this rather than dropping the bombshell and watching the fallout. Its also great to see quick follow-ups to rebuild problems people encounter. Sure, GCC is pretty core stuff but its still good to see its in such safe hands.
As for the removal of Ctrl+Alt+Backspace to restart X, I’m slightly bemused. I don’t have to use it very often (and perhaps its doesn’t address the underlying issue of _why_ I needed to restart X) but it is helpful and I’ve yet to see a proper reason for this change.
