The Workstation WG is tracking an issue for a first article to present “Btrfs by default” feature.
The Btrfs by default feature proposal has a list of benefits that probably should be mentioned, all or in part, in this article. An open question is what features to promote.
It’s important to properly communicate competing themes: providing Btrfs features transparently, and addressing common concerns. i.e. the good and the bad. It’s necessary to find the proper balance. Not addressing concerns possibly makes it look like a fluff piece. Addressing them too much will worry the reader.
What’s the first article’s purpose, audience, scope and prose? Possible components or themes:
The then, the now, and the future: i.e. btrfs problem upbringing, lots of bugs; but what do we know now that inspires confidence; and what do we imagine about the future usage of its features?
Hero’s narrative: ordinary life->seeking adventure->facing conflict->overcoming nemesis. In this sense the article is a call to participation by the Fedora community. Anyone can be a hero in the validation process, whether they are in favor, or skeptical, of the proposal. There is also a dual story because Btrfs is also an unproven hero+nemesis who will face challenge: the validation process.
