Re: [installer@ftp-master.debian.org: e2fsprogs override disparity]

udebs of priority >= standard are automatically loaded by d-i.
e2fsprogs-udeb should have a priority of standard, to ensure that
mkfs.ext[23] are present; IMHO the override file should be
corrected or we won't be able to make a filesystem without a user
manually loading the udeb.

As a library, libblkid1-udeb shouldn't matter: it should be pulled in as
a dependency by whatever uses it - e2fsprogs-udeb, I suppose.

He that would make his own liberty secure must guard even his enemy from
oppression; for if he violates this duty he establishes a precedent that
will reach to himself.
