In a weird partition creation issue where GParted didn't think my SSD was a block device, I eventually solved the issue and continued to my original goal: cloning a partition on a failing device into that new one. However, I have a lot of lost sectors. I decided to make a Python app on Github which will take the list of sectors (or raw log output from one or more common clone tools) and return a list of filenames.
Would this link be appropriate (since it's mine) and on topic (since it's not strictly part of the problem / resolution)?
Pro: I think it's interesting to the original question and would have potential value to readers. It would also be an insignificant portion of the total question text.
Con: It is really the "next step" from my question and not related to the specific question.
