De : Thibaut Paumard <email@example.com> Date : 6 février 2008 17:25:15 HNEC Objet : RFC/RFS: zerofree - zero free blocks from ext2/3 file-systems Dear mentors, I am looking for a sponsor for my package "zerofree".
Hi, I just updated the package: * removed the Dm-Upload-Allowed field; * corrected a typo in the manpage. Same location, same version number. Regards, Thibaut.
Note that I have set the Dm-Upload-Allowed field. This package is unrelated to the work I usually do with my sponsor Christoph Haas, which is why I prefer to ask here rather than to him.* Package name : zerofree Version : 1.0.1 Upstream Author : Ron Yorston * URL : http://intgat.tigress.co.uk/rmy/uml/ * License : GPL-2+ Programming Lang: CITP : http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi? bug=462091Section : admin Description: zerofree - zero free blocks from ext2/3 file-systems Zerofree finds the unallocated, non-zeroed blocks in an ext2 or ext3file-system and fills them with zeroes. This is useful if the device onwhich this file-system resides is a disk image. In this case, depending on the type of disk image, a secondary utility may be able to reduce the size of the disk image after zerofree has been run. . The usual way to achieve the same result (zeroing the unallocated blocks) is to run "dd" do create a file full of zeroes that takes up the entire free space on the drive, and then delete this file. This has many disadvantages, which zerofree alleviates: * it is slow; * it makes the disk image (temporarily) grow to its maximal extent; * it (temporarily) uses all free space on the disk, so other concurrent write actions may fail. . Zerofree has been written to be run from GNU/Linux systems installed as guest OSes inside a virtual machine. If this is not your case, you almost certainly don't need this package. The package appears to be lintian and linda clean. The upload would fix this bugs: 462091 (ITP) The package can be found on my personal repository: - URL: http://www.lesia.obspm.fr/~paumard/debian/pool/main/z/zerofree/- Source repository: deb-src http://www.lesia.obspm.fr/~paumard/ debian unstable main contrib non-free - dget http://www.lesia.obspm.fr/~paumard/debian/pool/main/z/ zerofree/zerofree_1.0.1-1.dscI would be glad if someone uploaded this package for me. Kind regards Thibaut Paumard
