    When it's stable enough for production use.

    Last I read they had corruption issues with the RAID5/6 code, so it got delayed. I think since then it may have stagnated a bit, so it requires a chunk of work to bring it into line with master, and fixing the corruption issue.

    Default ZFS had it in production ages ago.

    Until further notice, use ZFS/ZPL. In production for 6+ years already. (ZfsOnLinux kernel module and Illumos/BSD)
    - While BTRFS is re-inventing ZFS, still.

    It would be nice if we could get an update on this, though. It's frustrating having RAID 10 eating all my disk space.

    Or perhaps BTRFS is more of a ZFS replacement with many of the features of ZFS, considering the patents and the license surrounding ZFS.

    Default how to repair

    is it no possible to repair a broken Btrfs - had this month's ago after crash, my $Home was close to dead.

    @Markore is it possible to use ZFS with Linux - thought only for BSD?
