Yes, the maintenance has been impressive.

Well. From the point of view of mainline linux, there is no
back-compatibility issue, because the fs hasn't been merged yet.

You perhaps have back-compatibility concerns for existing users of the
out-of-tree patch, but I'd encourage you to not worry about that too
much - there will be fairly few users and they are probably pretty
technical and will be able to cope with a migration. It's a _bit_ hard
on them but on the other hand, omitting back-compatibility code leads
to a better implementation for the long term.

What you should be more concerned about is forward-compatibility. What
arrangements do you presently have in place to be able to later alter the
on-disk format without causing too much disruption? Having a strong
design here will make changes easier to do and will lead to a better
filesystem.

Also.. Don't get _too_ concerned about freezing the on-disk format at
this time. You could put in a mount-time printk("the nilfs on-disk
format may change at any time - do not place critical data on a nilfs
filesystem") and we leave that in place for a few months while things
stabilise.

And yes, I was planning on sending nilfs in to Linus for 2.6.30 unless
someone has decent-sounding reasons to hold it back.
