I had a very brief talk on IRC with Josselin Mouette (actually, not a real talk: a few sentences spread out over the entire Sunday on #debian-devel-fr). Joss objected something like "what are you guys proposing as alternatives to reiserfs for laptops. Ext4?" His rationale was that ext3 is annoying with its extra-long fsck operations and xfs is too sensitive to brutal power failures. My only objection to this is my personal experience with XFS (which is a little bit small). I personnally never experienced problems with brutal power outages, even though I recently had numerous occasions to try this (X "hanging" while I was off network, with power on/off as only option). So, well, I answered Joss that, yes, ext4 will be available in D-I as an option so that might answer his concerns. But, still, I felt the duty to mention his concerns. Josselin CC'ed as he's not subscribed to -boot.
