Re: [Libguestfs] [PATCH nbdkit v2 0/5] Add linuxdisk plugin.



It turns out that mke2fs has a ā€˜-dā€™ option which copies files and
directories recursively into a filesystem!  Who knew?

One problem is that it doesn't support merging, but I guess we can add
that to mke2fs.  It will make the implementation of this massively
simpler because we can remove all the libext2fs code, but I think we
still need the plugin to exist.

Anyway, v3 is needed at some point ...

Rich.
