    2135- thoroughly document each script & its function, in the source code
    2236- flowchart everything; save in PostScript & publish on web

    25 TASKS PROCESSED
    26 - write a TODO file :-)
    27 - write a CHANGES file
    28 - proper command-line switches
    29 - more switches/options
    30 - make switches and '--help' user-friendly
    31 - make it possible to burn CDs straight from script, if user wants to
    32   (using the '--call-after-iso <call>' switch)
    33 - well, implement some, to start with :-) <-- command-line switches
    34 - make it possible to write to CDRW disks directly from script,
    35   prompting for disk change <-- using '--call-make-iso <call>' switch
    36 - clean up the scripts, esp. mondo-archive, its "MakeTarballsAndImages"
    37   routine and the main loop
    38 - release a stable copy w/no known bugs & declare v0.90 (it's about time)
    39   ...well, one problem reported w/user's BASH but I'm working on that ;)
    40 - rewrite filelist splitter (parallelize it)
    41     - MakeAllFilelists &
    42     - while [ "`ps MakeAllFilelists`' is running ] || [ "filelist.N+1" exists ] ; do
    43         WaitForFilelist N
    44         MakeSet N
    45       done
    46 - directly support CDRs in kernel and scripts (?)
    47     - to burn a CD after creating the ISO image, use
    48         --call-after-iso "cdrecord ... ; eject /dev/cdrom" etc.
    49     - I'm not sure if the kernel has all the necessary features compiled
    50       into it; I'm looking into it.
    51 - write a 'man' page <----- type 'mondo-archive --help'
    52 - verify ISO archives against filesystem, to make sure there's no corruption
    53 - verify ISO filelists against original filelist, to make sure all files were
    54   backed up that should have been, and none were backed up that shouldn't
    55 - parallelized filelist-creation and -tarballing, to improve speed
    56 - added --verify option, to give LOTS more confidence in archives
    57 - mailing list? <----- now possible, thanks to SourceForge (underway)
    58 - write a proper README / quickstart file
    59 - better self-checking for prep-me
    60 - make kernel modular; include modules in tarball, to be put on CD
    61 - multi-volume backup/restore <-- works well! :-) [v0.916]
    62 - easier installation from tarball
    63 - faster code, esp. 'set-chopper'
    64 - proper '--help' thingy
    65 - better mondo-archive and mondo-restore progress reports
    66 - offer to restore MBRs for user
    67 - give user the option of _not_ wiping all hard drives
    68 - let user choose which files to restore (e.g. restore-me /mnt/dos)
    69 - finally, Mondo uses SYSLINUX instead of COMMAND.COM (thanks, Steve Pitts)
    70 - hack user's restored lilo.conf and fstab to reflect the mountlist, if the
    71   user has modified it;
    72 - let user amend mountlist semi-automatically to reflect larger/smaller hard
    73   drives than original (useful for moving files from one hard drive to another)
    74   ...part of check-mountlist-sanity
    75 - mondo-restore ----- edit mountlist (using pico)
    76 - Mondo now uses afio instead of tar
    77 - mondo-archive now much more sensible when sending info between processes
    78 - make Mondo distro-independent
    79 - save&restore all boot sectors automatically (MBRs remaining optional)

    86 - replace instances of 'cat | grep' with just plain 'grep'
    87 - concatenate all fileset lists; compare to original filelist.full
    88 - compare mode: nondestructive comparison of filesystem with Rescue CD
    89 - better verify-progress feedback [Verifying 5/107]
    90 - hdX2,3,4 layout now works OK at backup and restore time! W00H00! :-)
    91 - fix Win98 boot sector kludge problem

    94 - build and burn CDs with one command
    95 - support CDRW drives
    96 - support SCSI hard drives
    97 - write straight to CD-R by calling mondo-archive w/correct params

    141 - let user choose which partitions to format

    143 - if -E /dev/xxx then exclude _device_ from mountlist but don't exclude
    144   /dev file from filelist

    166 ABANDONED
    167 - detect size of CDR automatically (I don't know how)
    168 - allow user to choose archive engine besides tar (e.g. star, cpio)
    169   ...tar sucked; star _really_ sucked; cpio, forget it; I chose afio in the end
    170   because it was the only engine which I knew would work. I've used it for
    171   years w/o any problems. Tar has been nothing but a headache.
    172 - split up mondo-archive's functionality into separate scripts, so that it will
    173   be possible to backup files, do something else, then archive it, etc.etc.
    174   ...too much trouble; no incentive to do it; no-one asked me to :)
    175 - pseudocode
    176   ...why bother? If bash scripts are too complicated for you, try COBOL...
