Re: new credit printing mechanism now present in reiserfsprogs



(That's a really long recipient list - does this need only go to
reiserfs-list@namesys.com and debian-devel@lists.debian.org?)

If mkreiserfs was slower, I would suggest printing them at the start of
the program. It gives people something to read while they're waiting for
it to finish. (They would probably be more likely to read it, too.)

It takes less than 4 seconds on a regular file of 410M here, though, so
that's not a whole lot of time. Does it take longer on bigger
filesystems? Lots of people are making many-gigabyte filesystems these
days, so perhaps that really is a good idea.
