Post Syndicated from jake original https://lwn.net/Articles/757239/rss

While the 2018 Linux Storage, Filesystem, and Memory-Management Summit
(LSFMM) filesystem track session was advertised as being a
filesystem test suite
“bakeoff”, it actually focused on how to make the existing test suites more
accessible. Kent Overstreet said that he has learned over the
years that various filesystem developers have their own scripts for testing
using QEMU and other tools. He and Ted Ts’o put the session together to
try to share some of that information (and code) more widely.
