Bug#765104: Update hfsprogs to 572.1.1

Chris Cheney
Package: hfsprogs
Severity: normal

Hello,

hfsprogs which is derived from diskdev_cmds is very out of date vs Apple sources. It is currently version 332.25 which was from 10.4 (~ 5-6 years old) when upstream is up to 10.9.5 and version 572.1.1. Version 10.10 will likely be released in a week or so.

http://www.opensource.apple.com/release/os-x-1095/

Thanks,

Chris Cheney

Bug#765104: Update hfsprogs to 572.1.1

Hi Rogério!

Both Fedora and Arch are shipping a patched version 540.1 [1, 2],
so updating to newer versions seems possible with some elbow
grease.

Could you maybe import the sources from Fedora and thus update the
Debian package to version 540.1?

Thanks,
Adrian

Thanks for the pointers. I will try to work on these ASAP (including
some at least another package of mine), since the new version that
they may have package is sure to have many, many fixes and new
features, compared to what we currently have in Debian.

Will do (and migrate everything to salsa and modernize the package,
eliminate patches etc.).

Are you still interested working on hfsprogs or do you want me to take the
package over? Updating to a newer version of hfsprogs is surely needed now
and if you are no longer interested in maintaining the package, it would
be best to orphan it and me or someone else pick it up for maintenance.
