Hello,

I guess that fdflush is equivalent to

    floppycontrol -f

floppycontrol comes with the fdutils package.
Does anything still use fdflush?  Otherwise we
could just remove the fdflush package.

IMHO, this program still is a good idea.

- It's smaller than floppycontrol and doesn't do the myriad other things 
which floppycontrol does.
- It's useful for things which are not (broken) floppies.

For instance, if you change pc-card SDRAM disks while your laptop is 
asleep, the kernel doesn't notice either...

It seems that the sponsored upload didn't include the full changelog. It does 
say:

fdflush (1.0.1-8) unstable; urgency=low

  * New maintainer (closes: #170920)
