Bug#240587: ITP: ufsutils -- utilities for the UFS filesystem

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : ufsutils
  Version         : 2004-02-20
  Upstream Author : The FreeBSD Project
* URL             : FreeBSD CVS <http://www.freebsd.org/>
* License         : BSD
  Description     : utilities for the UFS filesystem

   Utilities to manage the UFS filesystem, mostly used in BSD or derived
   operating systems.
   The following utilities are provided:
    - mkfs.ufs
    - fsck.ufs
    - fsdb.ufs
    - dumpfs.ufs
    - growfs.ufs
    - tunefs.ufs
    - badsect.ufs

I've ported those utilities from FreeBSD, I've had to disable some things
because GNU systems does not support some features required but will be
added later when suitable interfaces are ported as well, they also need
util-linux compatible command line options. Because of all this and due
to Linux's immature UFS write support I'll be uploading to experimental,
and once they are mature enough I'll upload to sid. I'll move my private
SVN repo to alioth.

I hope those will allow us to do cross installs in the future. :>
