ufs translator supports some kind of the Unix File System. Beware, we're
not aware of anybody having used/tested it in ages, so maybe it is very broken
and will eat your data.

<Arne`> There might be a copyright problem: <nalaginrut> well, there seems BSD-4clauses in the code: http://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/hurd/hurd.git/tree/ufs/alloc.c <Arne`> braunr, tschwinge: Do you have any info on that? 4-clause BSD and GPL on the same code are a license incompatibility… <tschwinge> Arne`: I've put it onto my (long) TODO list. <tschwinge> Easiest solution might be: rm -rf ufs. <nalaginrut> will these affected code rewritten? or just modify license? <mark_weaver> only the regents of the University of California could choose to modify the license. <youpi> nalaginrut: one can't modify a licence if one is not the author <youpi> we can simply dump the code <mark_weaver> s/author/owner/ <tschwinge> As I suppose ufs is unused/untested for a decade or so, I'd have no issues with simply removing it from the tree, together with ufs-fsck and ufs-utils. <pinotree> tschwinge: or maybe extract the ufs stuff in an own repo, to be imported as branch in incubator or own hurd/ufs.git? <tschwinge> Sure, why not.
