Severity: wishlist

Dear d-i developers,

Considering that present HDs are very large, I think default reserved block size to Ext3/Ext4 can be 1% instead 5%. It will optimize the space usage by OS. It is a suggestion.

according mkfs.ext3 manpage's:

"This  avoids  fragmentation, and allows root-owned daemons, such as
syslogd(8), to continue to  function  correctly after non-privileged
processes are prevented from writing to the filesystem.  The default
percentage is 5%."

Debian installer is using the default recommended by the package.
If you want a non-default value, in expert mode, it is possible to edit
this value to whatever you want.

Melhores cumprimentos/Best regards,
