Thanks for this information. If Vincent Danjean is too busy at the

We're aiming at getting this done before buster goes into freeze.
For a change to the base system like this, the change (in e2fsprogs
package) needs to happen well before the freeze date. There's no strict
date for when all the bug reports Helmut filed needs to be done though,
but the sooner the better. The most important part is knowing that
maintainers have a plan for their package so we can identify the
packages which needs help being taken care of.
