re: Debian BSD minor projects

   * UFS detection in fsck. fsck is actually a wrapper that tries to detect 
   the filesystem, and DTRT. It would be helpful if it could identify UFS, 
   and run fsck.ufs, like it does with all the Linux filesystems.

FWIW, in netbsd fsck(8) is a front end to fsck_ffs(8) and others.
   * Port and package UFS mkfs and fsck for Linux. Hurd might use this as 
   well. Might be issues with differences between the BSD's. FreeBSD has 
   some recent features that may not be in Net or Open. (Soft updates, 
   snapshotting, etc.) I'm not sure if those would cause problems.

everyone has soft updates, but snapshots are freebsd only at
this stage as far as i know....  they shouldn't affect your
uses, but i could be wrong.
