Afaics, btrfs will soon get fsck tool for repairing the fs, but I wonder what's the plan for btrfs support in Arch, iow, when it can become 'official' ?
BTRFS is already supported by initscripts: https://projects.archlinux.org/initscripts.git/commit/?id=ca372312062e7843ca...
and package is in core distro repository: http://www.archlinux.org/packages/core/x86_64/btrfs-progs-unstable/
This sounds "official". But as underline Thomas, btrfs is still unstable ! However, ubuntu does not seem to be afraid : https://help.ubuntu.com/community/btrfs
There is enough reason to be afraid. After 4 weeks of unencumbered using, rm'ing a directory failed with the error "directory not empty". A fs check showed errors, as expected, but of course I wasn't able to repair it. Now I'm back to ext4.
