Talk:Btrfs - Tips and tricks

This page should be merged into the Btrfs article under a "Tips and tricks" section: Help:Style#.22Tips_and_tricks.22_sections, Help:Editing#Creating_pages,

There is good information here. It just should have been included in the existing page instead. :) AdamT (Talk) 04:27, 28 November 2013 (UTC)

Well, btrfs is probably still "short" enough to host these sections too, however sometimes splitting an article makes it easier to read, if the split pages are properly interlinked. Just as an example, this page could be moved to btrfs/Tips and Tricks as an alternative to merging (I don't have a particular preference for one or the other solution). -- Kynikos (talk) 12:49, 30 November 2013 (UTC)
I agree about merging, see this discussion. axper (talk) 16:15, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

Automatic snapshots on each boot

I agree the whole article does not really fit in a "tip" category, but I am not sure removing the Btrfs_-_Tips and tricks#Automatic snapshots on each boot section is the best approach. Essentially this would render the rest of the article useless. It would be nice to have a similar section/systemd unit in Snapper, indeed. It is a different (additional) tool though and to me (I have not tried either) this article reads like a smart solution for a problem that the snapper tool has not covered in a similarly easy way years later. I think it would be better to remove the template here and add a section with an appropriate expansion template into Snapper, linking to this section. Once that is in place, it would be easier to decide about this article (see also above talk item). --Indigo (talk) 08:03, 30 March 2016 (UTC)
