[LCFC] templates://fdutils/{templates}

This is the last call for comments for the review of debconf
templates for fdutils.

The reviewed templates will be sent on Thursday, January 03, 2008 to the package
maintainer as a bug report and a mail will be sent to this list with
"[BTS]" as a subject tag.


Template: fdutils/fdmount_setuid
Type: boolean
Default: false
_Description: Should fdmount be installed 'setuid root'?
 In order to enable ordinary users to mount a floppy disk,
 the fdmount program can be installed with the set-user-ID bit set, so
 that it will run with the permissions of the superuser.
 Such setting may have security implications in case of
 vulnerabilities in the software's code.

Description: Linux floppy utilities
 This package contains utilities for formatting extra capacity
 disks, automatic floppy disk mounting and unmounting, etc.
 The package includes the following items:
  - superformat: formats high capacity disks (up to 1992k
    for high density disks or up to 3984k for extra density
  - fdmount: automatically mounts/unmounts disks when they are
  - xdfcopy: formats, reads and writes OS/2's XDF disks;
  - MAKEFLOPPIES: creates the floppy devices in /dev;
  - getfdprm: prints the current disk geometry (number of
    sectors, track and heads etc);
  - setfdprm: sets the current disk geometry;
  - fdrawcmd: sends raw commands to the floppy driver;
  - floppycontrol: configures the floppy driver;
  - general documentation about the floppy driver.
 Note that these utilities do not work for USB floppy drives, because
 there is no direct access to the floppy controller.
