>From my POV, the question is not whether ntfs-3g 1.0.0 should be included in
etch (it won't be), but whether the risk of this data loss is significant
enough that we should consider dropping ntfs-3g from etch altogether for the
sake of our users' data. Since ntfs-3g didn't ship with any previous
release, and has no reverse-dependencies in etch, it doesn't seem
unreasonable to drop it from the release, and that seems to be in keeping
with our policy of treating data loss bugs with the highest severity?
