    Is the fsck available, fully featured, and reliable? No? Then Suse is out of their minds.

    "mostly" is not "enterprise ready" by any definition.

    It is when the FS itself has auto-repair capabilities...

    He's got a point Curaga. This isnt Ext4 where the only real mechanism is journal + fsck. Btrfs was designed for data integrity, even if they have to cut performance in some areas to do it. Before you hit the point of an fsck, you'd have to bust through a few layers of integrity checking and data repair that btrfs does automatically behind the scenes. And yes the fsck is released and can fix most issues. 100% issues? No, but then again neither can ext4's fsck.

    Quite frankly...this needs to happen anyway. You can run all the simulated tests in the world but at the end of the day even the best simulated test is still a simulated test. You need real-world usage on a larger scale and hopefully SUSE doing this will get the developers some more real-world data points so that any niche-cases where Btrfs falls on its face can be fixed.
