ITP: mkcramfs ... but how?
I would like to package mkcramfs, a small utility to create a cramfs
filesystem image from a tree of files.
However, the only known source for mkcramfs is linux/scripts/cramfs in a
2.4 kernel. This presents difficulties:
* The 2.4 kernel doesn't even seem to be in debian yet.
* When it is, it will be as a kernel-source-2.4.x package. Eventually
there will be more than one I'm sure, as different releases come out.
So we could make the kernel-source-2.4.x package build a mkcramfs
package when it is built, but then we would end up with many of them.
Doesn't seem it would work well.
* I could package up a copy of the kernel source tree, but that would
be upteen megabytes of source for a program this is just a few K
compiled, and less than 1kloc of source.
* I could rip the cramfs directory out of the kernel source, but then
it would not be pristine source.
I don't know what to do. I just know the debian installer project will
probably use cramfs and needs this utility to be available in package
