        Maybe worth committing, huge patch and needs FSF copyright

        Andrew voted against this one, so i am happy to keep it debian

So, basically, the errors-to-stderr, devfs and s390 patch may be worth
applying, doc-package, reiserfs-libname and lvm2 will stay debian-specific,
and ubd can probably be dropped.

Bug-parted mailing list

While we are there, I suggest changing the error messages. Instead of only the current "send this error messages and the following". We could add incentive for:

A description of what you were doing
The partition table (fdisk print)
Other usefull information

or more simply:
Refer them to the website of parted for more information of what could be usefull for bug submitting!
