Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2001-05-28 17:44:57 EDT
EXT3 has not been fully ported to 2.4 kernels yet.
People are working on it and once it gets usuably we'll surely include it in
rawhide kernels.

XFS is a different story, it's MUCH more complex and impacts the kernel a lot,
and has implications that once we include it, we cannot remove it again as
you wouldn't be able to read your data anymore.
