I request assistance with maintaining the squashfs package. I'd like to create
kernel-patch package with squashfs patches but I don't use this such method
of building kernel. If it would be problematic with yada (I don't use

The package description is:
Squashfs is a highly compressed read-only filesystem for Linux. It uses zlib
compression to compress both files, inodes and directories. Inodes in the
