Package: debian-installer
Version: 20080517

It is rumored that Colin Watson is working on adding support for using
relatime to d-i. I couldn't find anything in the bts, so I am filing this
bug to track the progress of this support and namely using relatime for the
_default_install_.

Here is the info I've been able to find on the subject

busybox relatime work

relatime support was listed as added but broken in the lenny beta 1
announcement
http://www.debian.org/devel/debian-i.../2008/20080317
and errata page
http://www.debian.org/devel/debian-installer/errata

mount support for relatime

I'm not sure if the improved relatime patch is in upstream/debian kernels
yet.

HTH,
