It's that time of year again - Haiku is going to participate in Google's Summer of Code, and this means interesting projects to follow. One of the three projects has the goal to bring XFS support to Haiku, while another wants to implement "an addon for Tracker to support the Git version control system". The last of the three projects aims to develop an SDHCI MMC for Haiku, which, from the description of the project, seems like a massive undertaking to me.

Three fascinating projects to follow over the coming months.

I've been tracking Hiaku for years now.

Even contributed to them a couple of times.
While I doubt that it will ever be Linux/Windows replacement, it is important to try.

As for XFS support, given the relatively small development team, using super-stable well-supported file system (along side BFS, possibly replacing it altogether in the future) is a *very* good idea as it will reduce the support work-load.
