As I have mentioned countless times in this thread. Red Hat is not a
major contributor to btrfs (and hasn't been for a while). If you want
a big adoptee of btrfs, look at facebook.

Please understand, by constantly going back to Red Hat, you are
ensuring Open Source and the Linux Kernel get looked as a single
company project. From what I can see on lwn, red hat hasn't even been
a majority contributor to the kernel for a while.  So, please stop
spreading this bit that just because red hat has pulled support away
from a project, it will die. The project will go away only when there
are superior options.
