Re: Bug#2088: README.fdisk gone missing.
This has been reported before -- the bug is still outstanding for several
reasons, but I will fix it in the next ELF release.
The future of the current version of fdisk seems to be somewhat
questionable, especially now that Bruce is working on a front-end for
fdisk 3.0. I suppose we'll probably retain this one in some shape
or form just to keep familiar users happy.
In any case, I expect to release a new version of miscutils this weekend,
depending on my health after some minor surgery on Friday. :)
