Btrfs is still under heavy development; it might be useful if someone familiar with btrfs were to add a section commenting on its overall stability. [[User:Vikingurinn|Vikingurinn]] ([[User talk:Vikingurinn|talk]]) 16:52, 17 December 2012 (UTC)
 
 
 
== Troubleshooting is now outdated ==
 
Would be great of some early adopters would modernize this section now that the stable release of btrfs-progs has hit [testing].  As the warning says, the package now includes the btrfsfsck which can fix problems on the filesystem!

Just wondering about step #3: "Setup the network"
 
I can't see any reason that this is needed. [[User:Capturts|Capturts]] ([[User talk:Capturts|talk]]) 18:35, 23 November 2012 (UTC)
 
 
 
: It's because of Step #5: Installing btrfs-progs. This is based off of the old install mediums, which  had local versions of programs, unless the remote repositories were enabled like in step #2. Since the new install mediums are remote-only (however they might have some filesystem tools on them), the entire section needs updating.

Note: The name of the file system does not seem to have an official capitalization, so the rule for the ArchWiki has been arbitrarily set to use "Btrfs" (capital "B" and the rest lower-case); "btrfs" and "BTRFS" are therefore wrong spellings in this wiki. -- Kynikos (talk) 09:36, 6 January 2014 (UTC)
