Hi
Is that possible to use different package for difference FileSystem driver?

Different file system may have require licenses.

I am not clear about HFS, UDF, but it seems FAT and EXT2 are different.

Thank you
Yao, Jiewen

Yes, that is exactly what I was asking. Feng was suggesting a filesystems pkg.
Could we just make a Filesystem package with a more liberal license and move fatpkg under the same banner?
