Dear SGI,

As a linux user, I really appreciate your efforts to port your high quality filesystem XFS to linux as open source. However, I cannot understand your release scheme. You must understand that people will just want to download a tarball, `patch` the patches, and `./configure;make all;make install`. I sincerely feel that lots more people would give this fine fs a try if you would find the time to release XFS as a tarball, which people could just install by applying a patch to the kernel source, and compile by issuing a 'make all' on the command prompt.
Just my 2$...

Anyways, keep up the good work.
