Re: Bug#661266: ITP: fstransform -- Tool for in-place filesystem conversion
* Giovanni Mascellani <firstname.lastname@example.org>, 2012-02-25, 18:39:
Package name: fstransform
Upstream Author: Massimiliano Ghilardi <email@example.com>
Description: Tool for in-place filesystem conversion
fstransform is a tool to change a file-system from one format to
another, for example from jfs/xfs/reiser to ext2/ext3/ext4, in-place
and without the need for backup.
Without the need for backup, seriously? Even the README says:
| Common sense and experience tell that you should ALWAYS have a backup
| of your valuable data.
| This script is intended for those cases where such backup is either
| already done, or is not feasible or unnecessary, typically because the
| data is not valuable.
| There is ALWAYS a possibility that the script will irreversibly delete
| ALL the data on the device you run it on, even if you use
| a tested combination of filesystems.
| All this foreword means only one thing:
| IF YOU LOSE YOUR DATA, IT IS YOUR PROBLEM.
| The author declines ALL responsibilities for ANY damage that may derive
| from using the programs and procedures described in this document.
