Package: btrfs
Severity: critical
Justification: causes serious data loss

BTRFS shouldn't be offert as a option filesystem in the debian installer.
It is unsafe to use. Quallity is poor. No recovery possible on filesystem errors. (The btrfs driver will even crash on a filesystem error)
The provided tool btrfsck doesn't actually do anything.
There doesn't seem to be any progres on a working btrfsck.

Atleased users should be warned to not use it, unless they don't care about dataloss

have used btrfs since Fedora 33 (linux 5.9).

Btrfs on 32bit systems is something else, but this bug report is for
