Bug Description

Binary package hint: ureadahead

The man page still states that the pack list is removed/regenerated if it is a month old, but the code has been modified to only remove it after a year.

I'm actually going to do something even more interesting. ureadahead will always reprofile and resort the pack after every boot. Yes, this will include any blocks read last time and not this time, but not any files read last time and not this time, so the pack will only grow slowly - and that'll be offset by the fact it'll always be up to date wrt disk segmentation.

(basically we'll always enable tracing, then always read, and ignore our own pid when we read back the trace file <g>)

We'll keep a record of the original pack file size, and throw it away if it goes over 25% of original size or something.

summary: - man page needs to be updated
+ Manual page still refers to "removed if a month old"

So what should this be changed to? "removed if a year old" (in description) or "removed if file goes 25% over the original size" (Mr. Remnant's suggestion"?
