Free hint: make a pointer to the wiki be much more prominent on the
tux3.org web site.  I tried looking for it on the tux3 web site, and
then on google, and the closest thing I could find was this empty wiki:


One thing which you might want to include is what makes the tux3 file
system unique and why someone might want to use tux3 instead of some
other file system?  The web site talks about "versioned pointer" which
is a technical feature that might appeal to a computer scientist ---
but what does that mean to an end user?

Performance?  Features?  If so, which features?  From what I can tell,
the feature set of tux3 seems to be a subset of btrfs; is there some
feature or features that tux3 have that other filesystems will not?
Not that I advocate file system developers throwing elbows or
otherwise being too competitive with each other, but the reality is
that every file system design makes tradeoffs, giving it certain
strengths, and some weaknesses.  So what *is* tux3's core design
focus, in terms of workload, or user base?  Making a clear statement
about what the goals of the tux3 filesystem on the web site is
certainly one of those things that I would recommend.
