I have hope that they will manage it in the next release.

Fedora has been the best way for new open source experiments to shine in the last years (Gnome 3, SELinux, and many others), thus I believe they will not abandon btrfs, and keep pushing it mainstream.

Good work!

why would fedora or any Distro abandon a new File System when they can gain from this new File System. have you actually read the Benefits of BTRFS compared to EXT4 ?
