libss provides a simple command-line interface parser which will
accept input from the user, parse the command into an argv argument
vector, and then dispatch it to a handler function.
It was originally inspired by the Multics SubSystem library.

* Re-enable metadata_csum for Debian (which was accidentally disabled
for 1.43.4-1)

e2fsprogs (1.43.4-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* New upstream version
* Fix e2fsck to require that the extended attribute is
always present even for files smaller than 60 bytes, to be
consistent with the kernel
* Drop the hard links for mkfs.ext4dev and fsck.ext4dev
* Clarify/update various man pages (Closes: #852726)
* Clarify the default for the "proceed?" question printed by mke2fs
and tune2fs.  (Closes: #852727)
* Fix various Coverity warnings and other memory leaks in fuse2fs and
extended attribute manipulation functions.
* Add Finnish and Malay translations
* Update Chinese, Czech, Polish, Serbian, and Spanish translations
(Closes: #774379)
2017-01-30 - Theodore Y. Ts'o <>
e2fsprogs (1.43.4~WIP.2017.01.30-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* Fix a bug which was causing mke2fs -d and fuse2fs to improperly
handle Posix ACL's.
* Fix a bug which could cause mke2fs -d to fail if there is an
zero-length file in source directory tree.
* Debugfs will now display project quota information.
* Debugfs has a more friendly and powerful to print and set extended
* Fix a bug in mke2fs where I/O errors weren't getting properly
reported to the user.
* Fix a bug in resize2fs when operating on very large file systems
which have a block size different from the VM page size.
* If the reported device size is absurdly large, mke2fs will now
report an error instead looping forever or crashing.
* Replace a test file in the sources with an updated version which has
a DFSG-compliant copyright license.  This was making lawyers
nervous, even though the file was only used in regression tests and
was never used when building any binaries.   (Closes: #840733)
