Not going to discuss the story itself here in public.
Can you be a little more specific? File systems is quite broad
One of the hard disk standards bodies is working on a new feature (which I'm
not going to post here) that would require changes to file systems,
otherwise the new feature is academic and useless in the real world. So I am
looking for someone with FS chops to comment on whether the changes can
reasonably happen. Cannot say more except in private.
Hopefully not something that would require said filesystem
implementators to pay licensing fees or sign NDAs or take affirmative
action to limit users' use of data, or onerous things like that.
