Bug#510271: installation-report: Lenny on a Slug - eventual success after a few tries and some fixups

ext2 instead of ext3 is a good idea... maybe this should be offered on
the NSLU2 by default as one option. On the other hand, it's also
fairly easy to use the default partition schema and then change ext3
to ext2 in the partitioner manually before actually formating the
disk. Maybe it's enough if I mention this on my web site.
What do you think?
Mentioning the ext2 option (and how to get it) on the web page is
probably good enough, since via the web page is the most common (only
really useful?) way to get a working installation. So I'd go with
that for Lenny. Adding it as an option for Stretch is worth a
wishlist bugreport, seems to me.
noatime is a known wishlist that will be done after lenny, I guess.
Does that mean that there's no way to specify it at install/
partitioner time? Or that there's no way to specify it at all? Or
just that it's available but not automatic in Lenny and planned to be
automatic in Stretch? Or something else?
I was under the impression that relatime (a good compromise between
strict POSIX semantics and practicality) would be standard (at least
in certain kinds of installations) in Stretch. Is that still true?
