That sums it up pretty well.

The XFS projects goals it to provide the  XFS  file system, not to
become an integration test bed. (some might argue that point since
we enabled devfs,  but that's a different issue ;-)

SGI has a team/project for doing integration/value add called LBS
Linux Base System formally know as ProPack.
I'm not sure if the nfs  dir patch is part of the BLT at this point
but I would be a good candidate.

this is a bit out of date but...
