Btrfs mailing list

The mailing list server utilizes greylisting (i.e. the server may delay mails) and discards emails that are in HTML format or that exceed 100,000 bytes. And please disable word wrapping in the mail client for sent mails that include kernel log backtraces.

What information to provide when asking a support question
When reporting errors or asking for support always supply the output of the following commands:
uname -a btrfs --version btrfs fi show btrfs fi df /home # Replace /home with the mount point of your btrfs-filesystem dmesg > dmesg.log
A lot of debug information can be retrieved from dmesg. If the relevant log information is very large, supply the output as an attachment in the mail instead of in the message body (though mind the restrictions above).
