Package: mc
Version: 3:4.8.13-2
Severity: wishlist

Dear Maintainer,

I think mc should (no longer) depend on e2fslibs. Today, many systems
don't necessarily use ext2/3/4 anymore. Virtual Private Servers based
on LXC containers make good use of btrfs subvolumes. So many installs
of mc will never get close to any ext2/3/4 filesystem.

Please change mc to, at most, recommend e2fslibs.
