Fwd: regular fsck runs are too disturbing

A little while ago there was a discussion here about fsck running at boot,
and the program AutoFsck. The author of AutoFsck just contacted me and asked
me what his next step should be. I don't have any official standing in the
Ubuntu dev community, so I'm just going to forward his message out here in
the hopes that it will get opened up for a more comprehensive discussion.
PS I also sent him a link to join this list, so hopefully he'll be able to
contribute to the discussion.

I just found the recent discussion of fsck runs on boot at:
I am the author of AutoFsck, and have been trying to get somebody in a
position to do something on a distribution level, interested. The user
interest in AutoFsck has been huge, unfortunately I don't have any figures
as it's primarily hosted on the Ubuntu wiki.
Anyway, the blueprint is at:
but so far, the problem of running fsck on boot doesn't seem to be taken
seriously, which is why I was glad to see the discussion on the mailing
So, I'm wondering where we can go from here, what can we do next.
Slingshot - a unique game everyone enjoys - and it's free :-)
