We are mostly in bugfixing mode right now, there is some feature work in
the pipeline, but other work within the company is consuming resources at
the moment. We do hope to be part of the mainline kernel, we expect xfs to
go into the 2.5 kernel first, then probably be backported to to the official
2.4 kernel after the core Linux developers are happy with its stability.
SGI does remain committed to the project, we are just slightly over committed
to other things right now ;-)
