I've submitted version 1.11.0-1 of f2fs-tools; it's currently in the
NEW queue.

The git tree for f2fs-tools is in Salsa:


The branches in the git tree are laid out to be DEP-14 compliant.  The
master branch contains the debian packaging, and there is a gbp.conf
file in the debian directory.  The f2fs-tools_1.11.0.orig.tar.gz was
generated using:

	git archive --format tar --prefix f2fs-tools-1.11.0/ v1.11.0 | \
		gzip -9n > f2fs-tools_1.11.0.orig.tar.gz

and is stored using pristine-tar in the pristine-tar branch.

The 1.11.0-1 f2fs-tools packages were build using git-buildpackage,
using the command "gbp buildpackage".  I'm using sbuild as my builder
so I have in my ~/.gbp.conf:

	builder = sbuild -A -s -v -d unstable
	export-dir = /tmp/gbp
	purge = False

	sign-tags = True

And I have in my ~/.sbuildrc:

	$build_arch_all = 1;
	$distribution = 'unstable';
	$source_only_changes = 1;

I fixed quite a few packaging issues while I was at it:

f2fs-tools (1.11.0-1) unstable; urgency=medium

  * New upstream release.   (Closes: #904286)
     - add sg_write_buffer for UFS firmware update in Android
     - wanted_sector_size to specify sector size explicitly
     - support fsverity feature bit
     - support lost+found feature
  * Install the library link files in /usr/lib where they belong
  * Replace the libf2fs0 package with libf2fs5 and libf2fs-format4
  * Fixed missing libblkid dependency in the shared library
  * Updated Standards compliance to 4.2.0
  * Added Theodore Ts'o as an uploader for the package
