I wouldn't trust BTRFS with photo album of my cats... I had it running
and couldn't compile OpenWrt on BTRFS volume because it ran out of
space, it was a knows bug that small files used up more space than df
and other tools saw...

But I as an advanced OpenWrt user and beginner openwrt developer would
love to see move to github, it would make things much, much easier,
please go for it.
