3 Need to verify:
4 ---------------
5
6 1. Verify that dump works with kerberos authentification (this
7 was ported from *BSD and was not tested - in fact, this
8 wasn't even compiled in!). Need success reports for this.
9
10 Urgent items (for the next stable version):
11 -------------------------------------------
12
13 All others:
14 -----------
15
16 1. More documentation? Examples, crontab?
17
18 2. Explore and correct dump problems on active filesystems
19 (lseek/read negative count) (This should be OK as of 0.4b14.
20 Unfortunately, this seems to continue for a very few users).
21
22 3. Reimplement the ext2 specific code in a "backend" and
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
26 already have the code for this). The BSD code in traverse.c
27 (all those #ifdef _BSD) should go into the ffs backend.
28
29 4. Implement a DEBUG option which doesn't fork on each tape, making
30 it able to debug dump with gdb.
31
32 5. Make a bootable dump tape? I don't know if it is possible...
33
34 6. Better readline completition in restore (escape spaces etc).
