Subject: Re: What's in e2fsprogs.git (stable)

The current blocker for a 1.41 release is resize2fs support for
uninit_bg, and apparently on-line resizing for ext4 is currently
broken.  The ext4 resize ioctls are wired up in the latest git
repository, but it looks like there may be some breakages in the
kernel side code.  For sure it doesn't support flex_bg, and apparently
there are some problems with a simple filesystem with only the extents
feature enabled.

At this point full extents support and journal checksum support is in
the "master" branch.  The "pu" branch is currently empty except for
some staged 64-bit patches (which aren't highly critical for 1.41; as
they are cleaned up, I'll merge them in, but right now getting the
last bits of functionality for 1.41 is highest priority.)
