Subject: multicd: Inconsistent comment and code in multiCDrc
Date: Fri, 15 Nov 2002 13:32:09 -0800
Package: multicd
Version: 1.6.5-1
Severity: normal

The latest multiCDrc has
# Extra options to give to mkfs.  The options shown here apply to
# the default filesystem type of ext2 shown above.  -m 0 means
# reserve 0 space for root, and -b 1024 sets the block size.
mkfs_opts = -m 0 -q

The comment is the same as in previous versions, but the option
setting has been changed.   It used to be
mkfs_opts = -m 0 -b 1024
(I might have edited the file, but I don't think so).

At any rate, the comment and configuration line don't match.  I
suspect one of them is wrong.
