Btrfs By Default Will Likely Not Be Pursued For Fedora 23

Filed under
Red Hat

There's been no recent pushes for making Btrfs the default file-system of Fedora Linux while many releases/years ago there was once talk and hope of it becoming the first tier-one Linux distribution using it by default rather than EXT4/XFS. However, after years of development, Btrfs isn't the default on Fedora -- but those customizing their install can continue to setup a root Btrfs file-system. Other Linux distributions like openSUSE and Mageia have since defaulted to Btrfs, but Fedora apparently doesn't feel ready yet to make this jump.

As an open source contributor, I began as a newbie and grew into a decent contributor thanks to working on many great projects. Today, I am mentoring new contributors on how to make their first contributions to open source. So, I think I can answer this question more elaborately.

Open source organizations have projects that need contributions from everyone, from all skills and levels of expertise. There are many non-coding ways too contribute as well, like: reporting issues, writing documentation, helping with design, trying previous versions, checking quality and translation, outreach for a product, and organizing events. Doing so helps you learn more about the open source project as well as to network with the community while adding positive contributions.
