This package provides the standard set of utilities for manipulating
file system usage caps via the Linux Diskquota system. It can set hard
or soft limits with adjustable grace periods on block or inode usage for
users and groups. It allows users to check their quota status,
integrates with LDAP, and supports quotas on remote machines via NFS.
