Why is this marked for alpha 5? It appears to have only just appeared, the package itself isn't even in ubuntu, contains at least 2 typos on the main page, it's listed as new, not approved, and it appears that the developers haven't spoken to the existing ubuntu developers at all?

I am not sure--I wrote the later add-on for Disk Manager as a result of threads on Ubuntuforums--I was as surprised when I found that it has been set for Alpha 5. I am for the software, but I agree that approval needs to go thru normal channels & the time for inclusion is not a LTS release.

We already have "Gui for editing the fstab":
