If your system will be very busy you may benefit from some optimization
flags that Steve Lord recommended awhile back.

For mkfs.xfs you may want to set "-l size=32768b" which means that the
logfile will be 32768 blocks big, which AFAIK is the maximum for the
internal log. Alternatively mkfs.xfs will figure out an "optimal" default
based on the size of the filesystem to be.

For mounting check out the FAQ entry "What mountoptions does XFS have?".

The list doesn't adjust the reply-to, so by default replies go to the
sender only. So most list members reply to all instead of just replying to
the list. I prefer just sending to the list so I manually change "To" to
just point to the list address.

Why the list server isn't configured to make reply-to the list address is
beyond me, but that's none of my business so I go one with mine. :)
