   I am subscribed to the list. No need to send the messages to me in
   private unless you are in a hurry, since gnu servers seem to be
   late these days.  :-)

It is normal to CC all people whom you reply to on a mailing list.

   However, the modifications are not made properly by GPL2 (including
   the dates of modification and proper notices that the files are
   being distributed under it). I was told this is Linux style. If it
   is needed to follow this style so the patch is included, I will
   agree to it. Should we submit it to lkml?

I don't know what the procedure to include a patch in Linux is.  If
there are some problems including the patch (copyright, functionality,
...) then this is up to the maintainers of Linux to point out.  I
think there is no harm in submitting it to where ever patches go for

   Another solution I am thinking in working on is modifying debugfs
   to allow people to set translators in an umounted filesystem. This
   would require no linux building, but only a e2fsprogs update.

What is debugfs?
