gpart (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

`gpart` provides the possibility to recognize partition with pluggable modules. It'd be great to develop such and provide them by default in the `gpart` package (or in separate packages `gpart-btrfs`, `gpart-zfs` or `gpart-modules`).

It seems like the development stopped at version 0.1f in 2001[1] although 0.1h is provided since before trusty. It be good if Ubuntu would provide a possibility to recognize partitions on disks with a broken partition table. As long as there's no alternative, development of `gpart` is a viable option, I guess.

I've collated multiple patches for gpart and just a few days ago got a patch to add btrfs support. I released 0.3 with this new support. Hopefully it will go into Debian at some point in the near future and from there can flow to Ubuntu as well.

Changed in gpart (Ubuntu):
