[nycbug-talk] XFS support in FreeBSD

Hey all,
    OK, so i'm not on the FreeBSD mailing list, so i'm probably horribly 
out of the loop.  I just checked out /. and noticed this little blurb:
"FreeBSD Release Engineering Team's 
<http://www.freebsd.org/releng/index.html#team> Scott Long has posted 
the 2003 FreeBSD year-end edition status report 
<http://www.bsdforums.org/forums/showthread.php?threadid=18470>. He says 
many new projects are starting up and gaining momentum, including SGI 
XFS port..."/

this is the first time i've heard of a port of SGI's XFS to FreeBSD.  
does anyone know of the status of this.  Because I work with SGI's all 
day, and use GNU/Linux because of it's XFS support, this is of huge 
interest to me.  Should I hold my breath?  According to the post, 
development seems to be moving very slowly.  Am I the only one 
interested in this, or to put it another way, is there even a need for 
such a port?
