 It could have been "exit" one day in the past, right?

 Is everything really there? How do I get these?

 I thought so. I'm surprised such things as added commands aren't in
the ChangeLog, unless they were present from the first version.

 No. I need to know what was the first version of the xfsprogs package
that contained this program. The version number, not the year.

 I'm writing a program that executes xfs_db and other processes,
passes commands to them and reads replies. Now I want to know what the
minimum required version is to be sure that these commands are
accepted. I know this might seem strange, but I'd like to know this in
more detail, so I can say "requires xfsprogs version X.Y.Z or newer"
instead of "requires xfsprogs" (which would imply that all versions
work, and this might not be the case). If it would be "1.0.0", great.
But I wanted to be sure.
