2.6.27-rc5 to 2.6.27-rc8 XFS changes in mainline have been minimal in
+
September with only about half a dozen bug fixes patches.
+
 
+
In the meantime the generic btree patch set has been committed to the
+
development tree, but not many other updates yet.  On the user space side
+
xfsprogs 2.10.1 has been released on September 5th with a number of
+
important bug fixes.  Following the release of xfsprogs 2.10.1 open season
+
for development of the user space code has started.  The first full update
+
of the shared kernel / user space code in libxfs since 2005 has been
+
committed.  In addition to that the number of headers installed for the
+
regular devel package has been reduced to the required minimum and support
+
for checking the source code for endianess errors using sparse has been
+
added.
+
 
+
The patch sets to unify the XFS and Linux inode structures, and rewrite
+
various bits of the sync code have seen various iterations on the XFS
+
list, but haven't been committed yet.  A first set of patches implementing
+
CRCs for various metadata structures has been posted to the list.
