Package: partman-base Version: 104 Severity: important During some tests of resizing partitions, I created a vfat and an ext2 partition and copied some data into them. After resizing other partitions I found that that data had disappeared. It turned out that partman just kept on formatting the partitions, even after that had already been done a first time. For the ext2 partition, the "Format the partition:" setting was set to yes. Maybe that flag should be cleared automatically after a partition has been formatted. For the vfat partition, no such setting is being shown, so I'm not completely sure what the solution there would be. Note that the formatting was being done as part of the "commit pending changes" that happens when (before) any partition is being resized.
