  • should we keep ext2 / ext3 together?
  • should this page be called ext2 / e2fs / ext2fs ?

My personal preference would be for the ext3 page to list only the differences between the two. But I am not opposed to them being in the same article.

License conflict

This page is technically licensed via GNU Documentation license, which is incompatible with the current cc0 license that we are using on the rest of the wiki. I suggest flagging a review. --Primis 02:40, 19 July 2012 (CDT)

There's a whole world of difference between ideas and expressions. Someone has taken the effort here to write up a new explanation of the subject, and of course the author will have had to reference other sources - most of them likely being "all rights reserved" and therefore worse than the GPL. If you can't copy other people's ideas you would never be able to write a thing. Instead, copyright is about duplicating other people's work, not about providing the same information in a different way. have you found any piece of text that's been (mostly) copied from another source? I've gone through the reference in question and couldn't find anything obvious. - Combuster 12:24, 19 July 2012 (CDT)

byte 206 and 207 reserve gdt size.

Bytes 206 and 207 of superblock are used to store reserve gdt size in ext3 to allow online growing and shrinking file system.
