Since nothing happens unless it's reported on the mailing list...
There's now an FAQ (with a single question) on the Baserock wiki:
Also, someone suggested that btrfs might be too slow for Baserock. I ran
some tests using the bonnie++ tool, on a laptop, against a spinning
disks (i.e., not on flash memory; didn't have a sufficiently large
SD card available).
fs type block write % of ext 4 block read % of ext4
ext2 44909 85 68865 116
ext3 44571 84 68782 116
ext4 52787 100 59518 100
btrfs 53118 101 54253 91
The results are satisfactory, I think.
