3Need to verify:
4---------------
5
4267a8ad 61. Verify that dump works with kerberos authentification (this
8590d613
SP
7 was ported from *BSD and was not tested - in fact, this
8 wasn't even compiled in!). Need success reports for this.

10Urgent items (for the next stable version):
11-------------------------------------------
ec387a12 12
8590d613
SP
13All others:
14-----------
8d4197bb 15
a94ecd11 161. More documentation? Examples, crontab?
8d4197bb 17
a94ecd11 182. Explore and correct dump problems on active filesystems
2f7e72ce
SP
19 (lseek/read negative count) (This should be OK as of 0.4b14.
20 Unfortunately, this seems to continue for a very few users).
8d4197bb 21
a94ecd11 223. Reimplement the ext2 specific code in a "backend" and
8d4197bb
SP
23 make the dump code more generic. This would allow creation
24 of other backends for other filesystems. Implementing a
25 (v)fat backend should be quite easy, as for BSD ffs (we
4267a8ad
SP
26 already have the code for this). The BSD code in traverse.c
27 (all those #ifdef _BSD) should go into the ffs backend.
8590d613 28
a94ecd11 294. Implement a DEBUG option which doesn't fork on each tape, making
8590d613
SP
30 it able to debug dump with gdb.
31
88ef261e 325. Make a bootable dump tape? I don't know if it is possible...
c930abff 33
cca7148b 346. Better readline completition in restore (escape spaces etc).
