 the ext2 part, there hasn't been much progress since
 i've been busy lately, but there seems to be several
 bugs that need to get fixed.
 freebsd has ext2 implementation that
 got rid of gpl code (code directly from linux kernel) and if
 anyone would/can port it to dfly, then we could abandon
 sys/gnu/vfs/ext2fs too.

     In spite of the big and fast development of DFBSD, this
 last one is
     still very limited for what concerns the
 interoperability and/or the
     exchange of data among different operating systems an
 their own file
     systems. For this reason, I had created an ext2
 partition to share
     my stocked data among DFBSD, Linux and Windows. But now
 I realize
     that under DFBSD also the ext2 file system is not (easy)
     though and because of there is a work en progress (see
 here: https://linuxfr.org/news/dragonfly-bsd-4-2#tmpfs-et-ext2).
     In consequence, I consider to change my ext2 partition
 in a fat32
     partition reformatting it, and after I'll copy all
 my data in this
     place from the data storage that I use for backup, an
 external hard
     disk. But in order to avoid surprises, I would
 be sur that
     the fat32 file system is totally accessible (read-write)
     Thank you in advance.
