Hi Artem,

Actually yes we shouldn't work on our own side, but as we didn't feel
like sending patches and patches..
It's may be possible to work on a specific branch?
Anyway next time we will try to do it more collaborative.

I think so.
Our lib has some redundant functionalities with libubi (e.g
ubi_get_device_info), so we may want to take some functions off.

Yes, mtd-utils is very messy, when will the new utils replace old one?
We are probably not in the best position to do it.

Ok, we will do it.
