I would think you would be fine because of pressure pushing out Unless there’s glass fragments in it. But I’m sure there isn’t. Just transfer it or bottle/keg it. I’m sure fermentation is done anyway at this point.
I’ve also heard and seen too many horror stories about glass breaking costing people limbs and/or good brew.
When you transfer just keep ur siphon well away from the sediment and cracked area. If there are any slivers in there that way you wont get any of them. Glass is VERY heavy and as long as you stay well above the sediment I cannot imagine a piece lifting off the bottom. As a comparison yeast is very lite and you have to get pretty close to the cake before you start seeing it lift off the bottom of the fermenter and head for you siphon tube. Long and short I would def try to salvage it.
Looks like you need some Better Bottles of buckets. I’ve been thinking about making the switch lately but just don’t want to spend the money since i have a bunch of glass carboys even though they are heavy and breakable.

Mine arrived in the mail already broken, when I opened it it looked like an empty box and then I looked down and saw it in little tiny pieces I was not happy cleaning up all the small pieces of glass that escaped through the bottom.
Stay a couple o inches off the bottom on both siphons and roll on. If you wanna be really paranoid I wouldn’t filter I would just not tilt the bottling bucket at the end and sacrifice what is below the valve. I cannot consive of a way a glass shard could make it that far with that many gravity seperations.
