Whiteboard

[dpigott: 5-Apr-2013] Flash drives are fine. Was able to dd to them from Ubuntu and MacOS with no errors - now looking at dd on the hackbox
[dpigott: 5-Apr-2013] dd on hackbox worked fine. Using bs=4M I got no errors and data rate of 4.8MB/s

Meta:
Headline: USB Flash Drive on Hackbox Working reliably
Acceptance: USB flash drive in use for rootfs

[asac, 24-04-2014]: note that this is an awful headline. Please do something better and ensure that the line gets updated accordingly on fabos release highlights page. Also the Meta: section is not well formed... first: Meta: is a standalone tag interprested as the start of a meta section (no argument like TBD); second we dont have the roadmap tag included that references this back to a roadmap card.
