Default The end of GParted Live CD?

I hope somebody picks it up.

GParted-Livecd -- News

Quote:
On last July 30th, I wrote I was looking for a new livecd maintainer.
So far nodoby contacted me for this purpose.
During this time I continued maintaining the livecd,
releasing about once a month.
I am alone to maintain this livecd project since about 10 months,
and some other projects exist with about the same goals.
I think the best one is sysresccd, from FranÁois Dupoux.

If someone is interested by hacking gparted (not the livecd, but the soft),
which supposes a good knownledge on C++, let me know ! I can enable svn repository
and push files into it, and give access to them with read/write rights.


Good by !

Larry

Yeah, what we have will work for now. The only problem is that if no one picks it up, there won't be any future development for new file systems.

It is a all in one tool for every file system across every platoform. This 1 CD covers Linux, OS X and Windows easily with a GUI that is esay to understand. Even a beginner can shrink, create and format a partition with this tool. So while you may not think it is a big deal. It is for those of use who use it for more than what others might.

Considering this is the most refered to Partitioning utility it does suck that it is leaving.
