Thanks for your remind!
I know many people here use reiserfs because of its high performance
on small files,
we have many legacy reiserfs file systems, so I think it's not user
friendly to put partman-reiserfs into
priority extra, it's better to only mark reiserfs deprecated in list
of fs formats and drop it in next Debian
I just checked the installation manual , it does refer to this
problem, but I guess many
people won't read the *new* manual at all :-(
