Re: [email@example.com: e2fsprogs override disparity]
udebs of priority >= standard are automatically loaded by d-i.
e2fsprogs-udeb should have a priority of standard, to ensure that
mkfs.ext are present; IMHO the override file should be
corrected or we won't be able to make a filesystem without a user
manually loading the udeb.
As a library, libblkid1-udeb shouldn't matter: it should be pulled in as
a dependency by whatever uses it - e2fsprogs-udeb, I suppose.

oppression; for if he violates this duty he establishes a precedent that
will reach to himself.
