 Hello,

In order to keep the thread on constructive lines, can we please have a
list of community projects that you've seen unavailable in Fedora?

 I think if the answer is stuff like Reisfers4, then it is a entire
filesystem that needs to be reviewed and merged upstream in the Linux kernel
before being in Fedora due to the packaging guidelines, our general upstream
oriented policy and fact that filesystems are really critical.  I think the
best thing for Viji to do is to remove them from the wiki page (which is a
pretty awkward way of maintaining packages) and maintain them in some proper
repo which accepts kernel modules.  RPM Fusion would be a obvious place for
this.   Having said that,
I personally think, the future is in really in Btrfs and Reiserfs4 is
unlikely to gain much traction.
