Re: reiser support in debian-installer

We are also looking for a good way to have the various mkfs-es provide
som progress output to use for the progress bar.  Basically, what we
need to do is come up with some common, easy-to-parse format which can
then be massaged and fed to cdebconf.  Currently, we display a blue
screen while the mkfs is running and this is clearly unacceptable when
a full mkfs may take many minutes.
