Last night, built this nice user interface for configuring periodic fscks:

Rather happy that that whole UI needed only 140 lines of code to build. Though rather more work behind it, as seen in this blog..

Today I added some support to git-annex for smart fscking of remotes. So far only git repos on local drives, but this should get extended to git-annex-shell for ssh remotes. The assistant can also run periodic fscks of these.

Still need to test that, and find a way to make a removable drive's fsck job run when the drive gets plugged in. That's where picking "any time" will be useful; it'll let you configure fscking of removable drives when they're available, as long as they have not been fscked too recently.
