Well, the situation with JFFS3, as *I* see it, is as follows.
Thus far, JFFS3 is on its design stage. There are a lot of interesting
ideas and proposals (including xattr) exist. I'm trying to summarize
them and to keep track of them in the "JFFS2 design issues" document
which one might find either on the MTD Web page or in CVS
(fs/jffs3/JFFS3design.tex). I'm trying to keep track of good offers
there. I'm limited in time but I'm doing my best.
The JFFS3 stuff which you may find in MTD CVS is merely the test
platform where one could try new features.
