Hi Jessie,

It's preferable that patches e2fsprogs be sent to the linux-ext4 list,
so they can get reviewed by the full ext4 community.  That being said,
I will accept minor patches sent via a pull request if they full meet
the requirements for kernel patches:

Note in particular the requirements for the Developer's Certification
of Origin (aka the Signed-off-by tag).  That has specific legal
meanings (for example, you are certifying that your employer allows
you to contribute to open source projects, or at least, *this* open
source project), so please take a close look at that.
