Another good looking idea is the file resizer utility. Both the utility
and the project look interesting. It does call for a regression test
suite, but I've never developed anyting more than simple tests for my
programs and don't know how involved that would be.
Testing that is simple: resize the filesystem (grow/shrink) by random
increments (within the disk boundaries) in a loop, and after each resize
run fsck. If there's something wrong in fsck, check what it is.
Then let that run for a few weeks.
See http://www.feyrer.de/NetBSD/blog.html?-tags=growfs for a similar topic
that you can probably use as foundation.
Any ideas or anything I should be looking at or for? Feedback would be
I think fs resizing would be of most benefit. But that's only MHO.
