Hi Helmut,

Helmut Grohne:
> Package: tails-installer
> Version: 5.0.2+dfsg-1

> We want to make removing e2fsprogs from installations possible. For standard
> installations this is not useful, but embedded applications and chroots benefit
> from such an option.  For getting there all packages that use e2fsprogs must be
> identified and gain a dependency on it as e2fsprogs currently is essential.
> tails-installer was identified as potentially needing such a dependency,
> because it mentions tool names from e2fsprogs in the following files:
> /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/tails_installer/creator.py contains e2label. According to file it is a C++ source, UTF-8 Unicode text

I'll investigate that and get back to you asap. Is there a deadline for
this request?
