Hello there! This is the final report on my project which aimed at initiating support for XFS Filesystem on Haiku, by first making a read only driver.
Work done during the program: You can check for the patches here: https://review.haiku-os.org/q/hashtag:gsoc2020+owner:shubhambhagat111%2540yahoo.com
All directory and files work is completed and we should be able to read them from a version 4 XFS Filesystem. I’ve come to realize that we can now even try to read version 5 of XFS now that the ground work has been placed.

Sorry for the late post, but here we go!
Introduction: I am Shubham Bhagat, a sophomore, currently majoring in Computer Science Engineering from Indian Institute of Information Technology, Sricity, India. I came across Haiku, last November (2019), while I was looking for an operating system I could contribute to. My interest to contribute came from a mini college course. I knew Haiku was also part of GSoC for many years now, so getting the chance to work as an intern and learn here was a no brainer.
