I think that the ability to shrink an XFS filesystem is a crucial
feature that really should be implemented. I wish I was capable of
doing so. If I dedicated myself to just that task, I estimate it
would be two years before I can code that. I'm just not that good
The other thing that XFS desparetly needs is a "fsck" or "xfs_repair"
that can be run on a read-only mounted filesystem.
I had visions of using XFS on LVM volumes for our product. I would
like to start with some default LV sizes, and have the ability to
shrink and grow them as needed to meet individual requirements. For
this, I will need to use ext3fs. (and very stable LVM; still
learning about it.)
