I seem to remember that resize2fs was recently released under the GPL. It
cropped up on Kernel Traffic about 2 months ago. AFAIK, it was originally
written by Ted T'so for Partition Magic, and then released a year later as
free software. Hmmmm, google search not very productive...I found a letter
by Ted T'so to lwn.net in 98 about it, but nothing more recent...
I've got green eyes, red hair, and I'm left handed. A hundred
years ago, I'd have been considered in league with the Devil.
