automatically resize the root partition on first boot

This package adds functionality to an initramfs built by initramfs-tools. When installed, the initramfs will repartition a disk to make the root volume consume all space that follows it.

You most likely do not want this package unless you know what you are doing. It is primarily interesting in a virtualized environment when a disk can provisioned with a size larger than its original size. In this case, with this package installed, you can automatically use the new space without requiring a reboot to re-read the partition table.
