  None (edit)
Description Eric Sandeen 2008-05-22 17:10:49 EDT
For ext4 userspace support as tech preview in RHEL5, we will primarily create an
"e4fsprogs" package with updated versions of filesystem tools which will
understand ext4, in an effort to not regress the stable 1.39 version of
e2fsprogs shipped in RHEL5.

However, for some standard system shared libraries in e2fsprogs like libblkid,
we will still want to backport simple changes.

One obvious change required is to teach libblkid how to recognize ext4[dev]
filesystems, because it is used as a mount helper.
