well, we do packaging, so it's not upstream issue.
go ahead, prepare a
request doing that (should be trivial). Not sure if it is seen as an
issue though — btrfs is a default filesystem choice, so we probably
want btrfs-tools around at all times.
If btrfs is installed, then btrfs-tools should be installed, that's expected -
but if btrfs is not installed, it should be possible to uninstall btrfs-progs
without breaking other packages (like gparted). User choice, etc. Granted,
users don't always necessarily make wise choices, but I would hope that users
who know enough to choose not to install a particular filesystem would know
enough about their systems to understand the implications of that choice.
Admittedly, though, ymmv on that one. :)
