Bug#267078: RFH: squashfs -- Tool to create and append to squashfs filesystems

Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

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
debhelper) I might to orphan the package.

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
 system are very small and all blocks are packed to minimise data overhead.
 Block sizes greater than 4K are supported up to a maximum of 64K.
 Squashfs is intended for general read-only filesystem use, for archival
 use (i.e. in cases where a .tar.gz file may be used), and in constrained
 block device/memory systems (e.g. embedded systems) where low overhead is
