Scott Long is the core person working on ufsj, and I have seen some 
stuff worked on in his perforce tree, but I think it's a ways away from 
being beta.  I'm sure he would welcome help.

gjournal is 'complete', but still beta, mostly (I think) due to lack of 
bug reports/testing.  I know I have been playing with it, and have had 
no real problems with the current beta.  It's a very cool tool, however 
it won't help with fsck's - it's aimed at solving other problems.
