Still catching up on older threads that moved forward while I was in
Denmark, Norway, the Shetland Islands, Germany, Belgium, Iceland,
Scotland, and Ireland.

IMO, there was more than enough context with Adrien's post (especially
his descriptor 'Ceph distributed filesystem') to make it seem both
semantically appropriate for this and other Linux mailing lists _and_
presumptively non-spammy.  As usual, context matters.  (Making a
'general point' tends to discard context.)

Filesystem news is cool.  Providing it is A Good Thing.  

I gently suggest just a bit more descriptive text than Adrien provided, 
but would not complain even about that.
