btrfs-tools (0.19+20130315-5) unstable; urgency=low
* Provide "proper" fsck.btrfs, similar in spirit to fsck.xfs, that
redirects users to use `btrfs check` and `btrfs restore` and exits
with 0. (Closes: #715242) (Closes: #716989)
Ideally, all btrfs mount points should be specified with fs_passno 0
in fstab. If fstab is migrated to that, I'd want to consider dropping
fsck.btrfs wrapper.
