Probably you have a very good motivation to do work from
scratch, but what is sad that instead of joining us and
improving UBI/UBIFS stack, you spend your time creating new
Almost nobody is interested in new unscalable solutions, and
you really waste your time, because we already have 3 of them,
There are so many things to improve in UBI/UBIFS, and there
is a possibility to create a scalable UBI2. You may do a lot
of exciting things in the area, instead.
Please, think about joining us instead :-)
