I'm strongly against this proposal. BTRFS is the most unstable file
system I ever seen. It can break up even under an ideal conditions and
lead to a complete data loss. There are lots of complaints and bug
reports in Linux kernel bugzilla and Reddit.
Such changes could affect Fedora reputation among other distributions.
I strongly agree. BTRFS has been 5 years from production ready for almost a decade now,
please don't force this on users that doesn't know any better.
