I use btrfs for 3 years now the last 2 is my root and home partitions
(with regular backups).
I am not using testing repository, I can enable it and test
btrfs-progs. I usually just compile and install btrfs-progs from
Hugo's repository with latest patches.

Unfortunately none of my computers have multi-device btrfs now, used
to have one for testing a couple of years ago

Let me know if I can otherwise help.
